Producer:  This winery was founded in 1932, and specialises in the Côtes de Thongue area between the small town of Pézenas and the Mediterranean coast.

Vineyard: The vines are planted on clay/limestone sites a few kilometres from the Etang de Thau and its famous oyster beds.

Winery: The grapes are given a few hours’ skin maceration before pressing and two stages of cold settling. The wine fermented at 16ºC and was bottled without malolactic fermentation.

Taste:  Elegant aromas of citrus, pear and white flowers, and a crisp, mineral palate ideally suited to seafood.
