Overview

Grande Cuvée Blanc comes from a selection of the oldest vines of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu planted in the schist soils outside the village of Fourques. Benefiting from their east-facing aspect, elevation and proximity to the Pyrenees these vineyards retain a naturally high level of freshness and acidity despite the warmth of the summer.
