This Muscat comes from the south-western Languedoc. The region is very bright and sunny with gentle slopes that go down to the sea. It is also the windiest region in France. The soils are well-drained clay-limestone and shingle soils originating from the former riverbed of the Aude. The vines are old and are grown on terraces. Yields are rather low (35 to 40 hectolitres per hectare) to ensure good grape concentration.
Muscat grapes are vinified according to traditional white wine making methods. The grapes are harvested early and undergo an alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures (15 to 18°C) so as to retain as much fruit and freshness as possible. Finally the wine is aged on fine lees for a few months in tanks where it develops its characteristic floral scents (lavender, rose) and candied fruit aromas.
