Tasting Notes

Tropical fruit, citrus, slightly honeyed, with hints of flint on the nose. The palate has lots of peach, guava, other stone fruit and fruit pastilles with good palate weight.

In the vineyard

Domaine de Vedilhan (pronounced 'Domaine de Ved-ee-ohn') is the estate of the Fayet family based in the village of Moussan close to Narbonne. The property is quite unique in that there is a natural brook running around the outskirts which provides natural irrigation to give much needed water. This gives the wines their freshness and appeal; keeping the vines cool in a very hot climate. Since 1999 the winemakers have been working closely with the Fayet’s on all aspects of the production, from when to harvest to the exact blend or style of wines. Vines are managed using the 'lute raisonnée' method. Terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale.

In the winery

The terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale, meaning the vines are trained to ‘dig deep’ for their nutrients and thus produce excellent quality grapes. The plots on the slopes are more gravelly or “cailloutis” and reserved for the reds. We also sometimes find little pieces of shells in the soil which have come from the sea. The 40 year old vines are managed using very traditional methods, whereby growers actively try not to use any chemicals or unnatural processes in their farming - respecting nature as much as they can.

Food Recommendations

Unquestionably, the near mineral texture in the finish craves to be an aperitif before oysters, lobsters and all 'fruits de mer'.
