Winery: Les Vignes Métissées translates to the mixed vineyards. Parcels of white, grey and red cultivars. The parcels have been replanted with white cultivars and a few red cultivars. Two years ago, we have added some grenache gris, blanc and noir, picpoul and cinsault. The wine gets its colour from the subtle use of the different red cultivars: this light pink comes from the terroir, not the winemaking.
Tasting Note: Aromas of quince, apple, fresh bread, and spices like coriander, cinnamon, dried ginger and star anise. The aromas are quite invigorating, they have an intense, charming impression that stimulates the mind as to how this complexity hits the palate. The palate is streamlined and focused, the spice really takes the accent and complexity up a register or two with fresh and ripe fruit. Provencal botanicals like rosemary, juniper and thyme appear echoing its terroir in the Mediterranean. A superb accompaniment to a puristic herbal inflected cuisine like roast fish or chicken.
