Origin

This Gewurztraminer is designated a Pays d’Oc Protected Geographical Indication wine. The particular character of this wine is derived from its region of origin, the Languedoc, whose climate is predominantly Mediterranean with very hot, dry summers and mild autumns, winters and springs. It is also a very aromatic and very fragrant grape variety resulting in wines with typical aromas and low acidity.

Vinification

100% Gewurztraminer.
The grapes are chilled before pressing. Low-temperature fermentation helps to create a concentration of primary aromas. Ageing then creates an aromatic balance.
