This south coastal French beauty is a rare blend of Muscat and Sauvignon Blanc. We expect it to seduce the many who taste it as it is a real party - and palate - pleaser.
Associated with Château Grezan and a part of the Cros-Pujol family, this vineyard has serious history, and respect, in Languedoc. We give it many thanks for producing this delicious wine that has so luckily graced our inventory with its presence. Simply put, our Tasting Panel can’t get over its delicate blast of citrus and high intensity finesse.
Reasons why we love it:
The proof is in the quality, vintage after vintage. This ultra-desirable region is arguably one of the most important in France. It’s a high quality terroir from which famous wines are sourced, and this white blend was made with complete complexity and freshness in mind.
We are so thrilled to bring our Members this unique white blend because 2015 is the vintage to talk about in Languedoc! A very fine vintage indeed that was first highlighted as great by the aromatic character of so many of the region’s superior grapes. According to Decanter, “Warm, dry conditions prevailed, promising a high-quality vintage of ripe grapes.” We have also heard rumblings that it is the best year in more than a decade and this spectacular blend proves it!
What more can we say than it is simply lovely. We suggest you serve it up as an aperitif before your next festive gathering!
An innovative and absolutely delicious blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat that is bursting with aromas and flavors of citrus fruit, papaya, fresh mint, lychee fruit, and melon. Balanced and with crisp acidity.
Jean-Louis Pujol fondly recalls his Grandmother Louise Cros working in her very small Carignan Grape vineyard. He was just five years old. Ploughed using just a donkey and a horse, the harvest was vinified at the back of the family house.
In 1989, Jean-Louis turned forty one and had taken over the operation of Grézan Vineyards: An ancient Templar Fortress, a historic landmark in its own right, the château that had been his childhood home. Jean-Louis always believed in the unique potential of the vineyards of Faugères and worked tirelessly in the vineyards of Chateau Grezan purposely striving for their recognition.
