L’Etranger / La Belle Verte 2021

11.86 alc.
Grape: Muscat Petit Grains
Terroir: Limestones, limestone marls.

The Muscat is one of the traditional cépages of the Roussillon region. To obtain subtle and complex aromas, they harvest earlier the most beautiful grapes, called « les belles vertes » (beautiful greens).

If you think that you don’t like Muscat, please drink this cuvee and think again! Not your typical Muscat at all. Very nice minerality, aromas of white flowers, just a little acidity and a little tiny bit of tannins. This millesime is a killer!
