Overview

Les Sables d’Arene Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc comes from vineyards located in a sandy part of Lirac – the same vineyard where their Lirac Vieilles Vignes is sourced. A blend of Grenache Blanc and Clairette in roughly equal parts, it is a bright, clean and mineral-laden white wine that we look forward to tasting every year when we visit famille Giraud as it is the perfect accompaniment with Mireille’s Blanquette de Veau.
