Description

In the heart of Languedoc, the Domaine de Viranel can be found in the Saint-Chinian terroir. Here, in the south of France, on limestone terraced hills, the vines share the land and sun with the garrigue and olive trees. This family vineyard consists of 98 acres on which they use a system of sustainable agriculture in order to preserve the lasting quality of its soils. In fact, the property has been in the family for nearly five centuries (since 1551), passed down from generation to generation. In the grounds of the property can be found the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa. The house itself dates from 1911, and is decorated with a Bacchic fresco, showing that the family has always had a tradition of wine-making and festivity.

TASTING NOTES
Beautiful golden straw colour with green highlights. Delicate nose of white flowers and citrus fruits. Sweet palate marked by good acidity, dominated by lemon and grapefruit notes, coated by apricot aromas. Fresh and lingering finish.
