2020 Sarabande Vin Blanc
Cépages – 80% Roussanne 20% Marsanne
Alcool – 12.0%
The Languedoc had been producing high quality white wine for a long time. There are some amazing old vineyards producing grapes with hardy, thick skins that are capable of withstanding the hot local environments. One such variety is Roussanne. We were lucky enough to take ownership of an amazing little parcel in 2019. This is our second wine made from the block.
A blend of Roussanne with a hint of Marsanne. The aromas of apricot and peach begin, followed by a silky and luscious palate with an electric finish. The grapes were grown organically and naturally fermented. It was then vinified in barrels to give it its structure. It is an amazingly textured wine to be enjoyed with the best chicken, turkey or game birds.
