This is a fairly simple Grenache Blanc-Marsanne blend from Roussillon, lightly-coloured with a certain aromatic austerity followed up by soft, rounded juiciness in the mouth. The flavours are mostly a combination of tart apple and lemon mixed with pear, but it's the rocky minerality that stands out and speaks to the schistous soil of the region. Light and refreshing, it isn't necessarily what one would expect given the generally rough, rustic reds of the area, but it's quite pleasant indeed, not to mention an excellent value.
