Overview

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