The opinion of the wine taster

While observing the elegant appearance and the green tones of this wine, I think of the name of this fine wine produced in the Terre d’Argence. It refers to silvery shimmer of alders’ and olives’ leaves moved by the Mistral wind. This wine tasting reveals a generous, mineral and elegant wine. One of Robert Parker’s favourite.  

 

The terroir

This white wine is classified as a “Vin de Pays du Gard”. The vineyards are located between the southern regions of Rhone and Camargue. The soil is mostly composed of pebbles of sandstones that allow the ground to absorb the sunlight during the day and free them during the night to preserve the freshness and the purity of grapes. The Mistral wind blows on the vines for one third of the year and it assures a natural purification of the vineyards, thus reducing the need for sanitary treatments.

lecepage The grape variety

35% Viognier, 30% Petit Manseng, 20% Roussanne, 25% Marsanne. The main grape variety is the viognier, cultivated in the savage vines of the Rhone region. It produces high quality white wines. They are smooth, fat, generous and perfumed on the palate.

lemillesime The vintage

The 2011 was a good year. The vegetative cycle started with the right step with a dry and warm spring, followed by a relatively fresh summer. A windy September was crucial to blow away grape diseases, allowing a very beautiful harvest.

lerecoltant The winemaker

Before taking over the family business in 1990, the wine expert François Collard worked for the winery Château Lafite Rothschild at Bordeaux. Together with his wife, François exploits the potential of this land by producing exceptional wines.
