Le Chemin des Garennes 2017, Château Capion (white)
France / Languedoc
Andy's Tasting Notes
I really, really like this – it’s complex and rich yet totally refreshing, clean and exquisitely balanced. Hints of apricot, toasted nuts, mineral, citrus, spice and cream. A real class act.
Don’t over chill this wine.
Price per bottle £14.90
The Château Capion estate is a 45 hectare vineyard with a unique terroir. 200 metres up the Terrasses du Larzac, the land around its château, winery and wine cellar extends over three broad geological zones, the soils underfoot changing from Montpellier sandstone and clay to limestone gravels and alluvial silts. These habitats, the biodiversity present all around, and the climatic variations at Capion are nuanced in wines that express, in their power and finesse, their provenance.’
