With Ensédune, discover the essence of Languedoc!
Les Vignobles Foncalieu
At the edge of the Mediterranean sea, the Oppidum Romain d’Ensérune dominates the terroir of the Ensédune wines. It is characterized by one of the warmest and dryest climates of France located at the west of Béziers. Proud of a thousand-year-old tradition, the Ensérune winegrowers were keen to develop their vineyards by acclimatizing grape varieties from various horizons. Created by teamwork, the Ensédune range is the product of generations of collaboration by winegrowers and presents unusual grape varieties for monovarietal wines.
Mineral, rich, fine aromas, peach and citrus fruits, floral notes of acacia, honeysuckle, jasmine, and hawthorn. Concentrated aromas on the palate.
To be tasted with white meat, cheeses, and shellfish.
Loves hillside terroirs, acidic pebbly soils, and dry lands. Found to the north of the VPE area (Cazouls, Maraussan).
Marsanne is a vigorous, late-maturing variety originating from the Rhone valley. Its high levels of tannins hampered the production of the first vintages. But since then, the vine growing and oenological teams have found the right formula. It’s the flagship variety of the range!
Grapes harvested at full maturity at the hottest time of the day. Oxygenation of the grape must after pressing to eliminate polyphenols which would create bitterness in the finish wine. Fermentation at 20 degrees Celsius in French oak barrels, medium toast.
