Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and light

This clear yellow wine unveils a nose typical of the Muscat, evoking the white flower and the yellow fruits. All about suppleness, the attack leaves space for a sweetened taste. The aromas of the nose are to be found in mouth, bringing greed to the well-balanced whole that demonstrates a great tension. Finally, here is a great vintage to discover absolutely.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Do you know ?

There are over 690 cooperative wineries and unions in France. Together, the 84000 winegrowers produce 39% of A.O.C wines (French appellation wines), 71% of Vins de Pays (local wines) and export over a third of their production abroad. Acting as a collective force, those cooperatives allow winegrowers to focus on their vineyards without directly having to take care of the winemaking process and the commercialization of their wines.

Domain and appellation

  • La Cave des Vignerons de Frontignan

    Founded in 1904, La Cave des Vignerons de Frontignan produces wines focused on a single grape variety, the small, white Muscat grape. This great perfumed wine, subtle and generous, keeps the memory of its legendary origins in its twisted bottle.

     

    • Terroir: Located at the foot of the Massif de la Gardiole, in the commune of Frontignan, the 460-hectare winery lies on clay-limestone soil.

     

    • Viticulture: Harvesting is done manually.

     

    • Vinification: Mutage is done by adding extra-neutral vinous alcohol to stop fermentation. The wine is then matured on fine lees for 6 to 8 months.
