Le Soula 2012

IGP Côtes Catalanes, Roussillon, Sud de France, FranceLe Soula comes from one of Southern France's most exciting natural and biodynamic wineries, run by winemaker Gérard Gauby, who found the abandoned vines in the Cotes Catalans in Roussillon in the late 1990s. In 2012 the blend is Macabeu, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermentino and Malvasia grown on decomposed granite and gneiss at some 500m altitude in the Fenouillèdes region (the French word for fennel). Look for a yellow-orange hue with wild notes of pineapple, peach and tangerine dusted with wild herbs or garrigue. A citrus perfume freshens the front palate followed by a textured, skin-contact, mid-palate laced with almonds, mineral salts and more complexing garrigue. White wine for contemplation and any style of food you can imagine.Tasted: 24 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 55.99 BCLS Producer: Le SoulaDistributors: Altus Wines
