Overview

A joint project of Michel Gassier, Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon, Cercius is the Latin name for the winds that originate in the mountainous Massif Central to the northwest of the Costières de Nîmes. Combined with the thermal breezes from the Mediterranean, the Cercius moderates the terroirs where Michel Gassier farms his white grape varieties. Cercius Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc (hence the Vin de France designation), which is fermented in concrete tanks and aged for a few month before release.
