    Winemaker's Notes:

    Straw yellow with soft green highlights. Very aromatic, predominantly aromas of citrus, flowers, and flint. Medium bodied and crisp, pairs well with roasted monkfish, paprika grilled game hen, and goat cheeses.

    Blend: 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Sauvignon Blanc

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Cercius Blanc, a collective effort from an impressive trio consisting of Michel Gassier (from the Costieres de Nimes), Philippe Cambie (the brilliant oenologist from the southern Rhone), and Eric Solomon (the importer whose values are herein profiled), is a blend of 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Sauvignon Blanc aged on its lees in concrete tanks. Only entitled to a Vin de France appellation, it offers abundant notes of lime juice, crushed rocks, spring flowers and a hint of pineapple juice. Medium-bodied, elegant, dry and vibrant, it can be enjoyed over the next year.
