Mas Des Caprices BToB is like the Autumn to Gris Gris' Summer. A light golden colour, it is very dry, with notes of white flowers, honey, pear and an almost encapsulated sweetness on the nose. On the palate we could detect old fashioned pear drops, white peach, green apple and there was definite structure to it with lots of character, very very slight tartness, leaving a straw like dryness lingering on the tongue. Amazing to drink with our autumnal pork casserole, and great to have as an aperitif.

Cuvee Amelie Chardonnay 2016 from Domaine Cazulet.
The aromas of this un-oaked chardonnay are fresh and fruity. On the palate there is a lovely freshness to it, with a hint of white peach and lemon and good acidity. It is very well balanced with a medium finish. We think this chardonnay is a fabulous wine for the price. If you think you don't like chardonnay, we suggest you try this.
100% Chardonnay wine from the great organic vineyard of Stephane Cazulet. This is a very special chardonnay wine and we personally think that if you don't want to pay the price tag for a Burgundy, this is a great substitute. Aged in oak for 6 months, it has a pleasant nose of tropical fruits. It is rich and slightly buttery with delicious fruit of melon, pineapple and nectarine. We think it is quite special. Great with creamy dishes, salmon, and white richer meats.
The vines are planted on clay and limestone hills at 140 metres altitude, with sandy pebbles and draining rock of fossilised coral.This beautiful 100% Vermentino (or Rolle as it is also known in France), is slightly mineral on the nose with notes of white flower. It is light and refreshing with good acidity, green apple, pear and lemon rind.
