Asphodèle: A Mediterranean flower.
Grenache Gris is a discreet varietal; however it expresses all the characteristics of the terroir where it is planted. On the schist in Banyuls it is very mineral and develops white flower aromas.
Region: Languedoc - Roussillon
Appellation: Banyuls AOP
Grape Variety: Grenache Gris
Maturating: 12 months in barrels.
Production: 1000 bottles
When about 90 g/l of residual sugar is left over, the wine is muted with pure alcohol (99 % vol.). The wine is fermented in vats, and then placed in a container where it is matured without malolactic fermentation in view of conserving all its freshness.
Golden and very limpid, Asphodèles exhales refined aromas of citrus (orange peel), of pear, of peach and of white flowers. The well-balanced palate is a combination of sweetness, depth and freshness.
Perfect with all sorts of fruit-based desserts.
Best served at 8°C.
