Andy's Tasting Notes

This has an intense yet refined citrus, peach, wild herbs, fennel, mint and flinty personality.  The richness is beautifully offset with wonderful minerality, freshness and crisp acidity.

70% Rousanne, 30% Grenache Blanc

The Languedoc is often thought of as France’s engine room, it is after all the second largest wine region in the world just behind Castilla La-Mancha. But if Languedoc is the engine room, Prieure is a Rolls Royce. It has quite a pedigree, the vineyards were first planted by Cistercian monks who also built the Priory church of Saint Jean in 1152. Just over 30 hectares is broken into 45 different blocks and 3 different major soil types; galets, basalt and limestone, Burgundy eat your heart out.  Of course, it’s warm in the South of France, on paper these look like big wines, but in reality they have a finesse and purity that feels balanced and fresh.
