  • Winemaker Notes High in the hills of the Corbières, in a stunning corner of south west France, Château Trillol has been the Sichel family property since 1990. At 400m above sea level, the vineyard is located in two of the Corbières terroirs: Termenès and Quéribus. Here the local grape varieties, Roussanne and Maccabeu (harvested by hand), result in an authentic wine that is packed with character and a strong sense of place.
  • Tasting Notes Beautiful, deep yellow hue with golden tints. Highly expressive and original bouquet. It combines tropical fruit, mango and passion fruit with notes of asparagus and truffle. The generously ample, silky attack is underpinned by great vibrant freshness. The aromatic back-of-palate adds an atypical finishing touch that cannot fail to please. A great white wine made with little-known grape varieties – to try out with friends as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to a fish dish.

  • Vinification As soon as they arrive at the winery, the grapes are separated from the stems and rapidly pressed to conserve their freshness. After pressing, fermentation takes place at very low temperature; must cold-settled. Fermentation lasts around 8 weeks. Vat-aged on fine lees for 3 months. The lees are stirred up ever week. Bottled at the estate.
