Les Jamelles Sauvignon Blanc 2016
This Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely pale yellow colour. It is rich and aromatic with intense scents of fruit (gooseberry, passion fruit, green tomatoes, wild strawberry and lemon). It also displays floral nuances (honeysuckle), and a mineral "flinty" scent from the limestone soil. It is very fresh on the palate with a good acidity and a natural hint of CO2 which gives it freshness. Rich, round and well-balanced finish.
Les Jamelles is a unique collection of handcrafted varietal wines that have been produced in the Pays d'Oc, in the South of France, since 1991.
Catherine and Laurent Delaunay travelled throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon region for several years to determine which were the best terroirs for each variety and convince growers to work with Les Jamelles to produce characterful, well-balanced, complex wines that express their varietal characteristics.
The grapes, grown year upon year by local growers, are vinified on site as close as possible to the vineyards, under the watchful eye of Catherine Delaunay and her winemaking team.
The most up-to-date techniques are used, and are adapted to suit the characteristics of each wine and each vintage.
