Olivier Coste Orange Star 2022

Faugères, Coteaux du Languedoc, Languedoc, Sud de France, FranceAs you can assume from the name, and the glowing orange hue, Orange Star is an organic skin contact blend of 90% Muscat à Petits Grains and 10% Grenache Gris from their Faugères estate, with 7 days’ maceration before blending and a 6 month stint in stainless. Tight and zippy, with grapefruit, Asian pear and pear blossom before a pithy finish. My bottle was pretty mousey, which is unfortunate, as this was promising. Better luck next vintage.Tasted: 07 December 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
