Château Daurion // LE LONG DU PARC // 2013
60% Grenache Blanc, 40% Roussanne
The volcanic basalt soil draws a mark on our land and gives the wine richness and complexity. The vineyard, characterized by low yields, is spread on southeast facing terraces to the Mediterranean Sea
Daurion estate is situated close by the Mediterranean sea which brings a unique freshness.
WINEMAKING & AGEING
The harvest is done at night to enjoy the freshness and preserve the wine’s aromas. The grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation takes place in barrels and the wine rests there for about seven months, awakened by regular stirring to put the lees in suspension.
Its elegant pale yellow color with silver highlights will sublimate you with its expressive aromas of acacia flowers accompanied by toasted hazelnut with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, flavors of white peaches and candied orange peel intensify, to a final blend of freshness and roundness. Thus, through the alchemy of the winemaker, this wine shines all around!
PAIRING WINE & FOOD
Our white wine will be in perfect harmony with a nice selection of cheeses, to reveal its freshness after dinner. It is also perfect, associated with fresh scampi or the iodine finesse of scallops cooked with a touch of olive oil. Service temperature between 10°C to 12° C
2 to 5 years at constant temperature between 10 to 12°C.
