2018 Domaine les Vignes Oubliées Blanc


2018 Domaine les Vignes Oubliées Blanc – 18.50€

This is a stunning example of how white wine in the Languedoc is improving apace, and comes from a relatively new estate with vineyards in the hills above St. Jean de la Blaquière.

Jean-Baptiste Granier worked with Olivier Julien, whose white is one of the stars of the region.

This is a blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, with some Clairette Blanche and some Roussanne.  Half is fermented in oak, and half in vat.  The wine is fresh; the oak is nicely integrated and the palate beautifully balanced with an elegant finish.
