This is a sunny, vibrant and pure Grenache Blanc from Jean-Daniel and Thomas Ozil of Domaine Ozil who tend 16 hectares of vines in their fifth-generation polyculture farm in the south of central France's Ardèche not far from the Gorges de l'Ardèche and the Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave.
Tasting Notes: Lychee and lemon custard. Potentially a bit of trapped CO2 in bottle. See: spritzy, star-bright joy in a bottle.
Vinification: 100% Grenache Blanc hand-harvested before a direct-press in an old manually-worked vertical press known as the 'clic-clac.' The wine sees a very short élevage before youthful bottling. Unfined, unfiltered, no additional SO2.
