Le Clos de ma Mère
AOP Saint-Chinian Blanc 2014
Some wines are like fleeting and rare moments. It all started with the acquisition of a small acre of vines surrounded by cistus and gorse. After much time & care for this extremely fragile vine, we excitedly vinified for the first time this cuvee Saint chinian white in 2011. Seeking a balance between finesse and florals aromas, we hope with this wine you will share magical moments.
