Borie de Maurel La Belle Aude, Minervois

Borie de Maurel La Belle Aude, Minervois

A white Minervois created from Marsanne grapes that grow on vines planted on limestone and marl soils ripped from the mountain by an ancient glacier. The ripe grapes are picked in the cool of the early morning before being directly pressed. The juice is clarified and the ferment is kept relatively cool; it stays in vats for 3 months on fine lees before being bottled. The palate has a rich mouth-feel with savoury and stone-fruit flavours backed by floral notes.
