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.
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.
- Muscat : 100%
