Andy's Tasting Notes

This is still young so decant 1 hour before serving to help develop the intense yet refined cirtus, peach, wild herbs, fennel, mint and flinty characters.  Or, keep 2-3 years to develop more complexity.

30% Grenache Blanc, 70% Rousanne.

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 feel balanced and fresh.
