WINEMAKER NOTES

The vines of our Petit Paradis flourish on a magnificent plateau located to the south-east of the Saint-Chinian appellation. In this haven of peace nestling at 200 meters above sea level, the passion of the Mediterranean climate is tempered by the freshness of altitude. An exceptional climatic alliance revealing a complex and generous white wines.

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant gold color. Complex bouquet of white fruit and quince jam. Intense and soft on the palate with a long, spicy finish.

Served chilled with a monkfish tagine, a ginger tuna, or chicken with cream.
