Domaine du Petit Chaumont Gris de Gris

£12.00


Categories: , , .

From the appellation of Vins de Pays Sables du Golfe du Lion which is the Camargue region, best known for wild horses and flamingos, right on the coast just to the West of Marseilles.

The grapes vines are grown on very loose soil comprising mainly of dune sand.

The domaine of 120 hectares was reclaimed by Alain Bruel in the 1960s. He had moved from Algeria and planted on land abandoned due to mines laid in the Second World War.  It is now run by his daughters Brigitte and Nathalie who farm entirely organically.

The vines have an average age of 30 years and are Grenache Noir and Gris (60%), Syrah (5%), Cincault ( 5%) and Cabernet Franc (30%)

Pale salmon and apricot colour. Ripe nose with fruit scents. Fresh and round on the palate with a lively expression. Fruity aromas reminiscent of white fruits (peach, pear).

Drink chilled as an aperitif, with grilled fish, grilled meat, or exotic cuisine.
