Les Chiens, Blanc, Vin de France, France, 2020

Producer Profile

These wines really are "The Dog's"....

A cracking red and white pair from the Roussillon, deep in southern France. A region much overlooked and brimming with promise and potential.

Viticulture

From some of the best vineyards in the Roussillon, this distincively French white wine is crafted from native varietals to the region, usually a blend of Colombard, Vermentino, Marsanne or Grenache Blanc. The soils are rich in clay and silt.

Winemaking

A traditional white wine fermentation follows a direct pressing and racking in stainless steel without carbonic maceration.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Slightly floral on the nose with a hint of minerality and pastry. Honeysuckle, peaches and herbs shine through supported by lovely texture, depth and weight. A salivating mouth, which is slightly saline and with juicy pear notes.

Food Matching

This stands up well to rich paté, creamy sauces and white meats.
