Clos du Serres, 2018 Saut du Poisson – 15.00€
Clos du Serres is one of the leading estates of the village of St Jean de la Blaquière, and the owner, Sebastien Fillon, is the new president of the syndicat of the Terrasses du Larzac.
He and his wife Béatrice make a very convincing range of red wines, based on each of their different vineyards, but I do have a soft spot for their white wine. It is a blend of 65% Grenache blanc, 25% Carignan blanc and 15% Vermentino, with a small amount of wine both fermented and aged in barrel. But the oak is well-integrated so you do not notice it at all and the wine has some deliciously fragrant fruit and ripe flavours on the palate.
