Made mainly with Grenache Blanc and a splash of Macabeu, this wine is lightly aromatic with green apple, citrus and floral notes with a refreshing, appetising finish.

The Oc, or ‘Pays d’Oc’ as you’ll see it on most labels, refers to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, known by the French as ‘Le Midi’. Planted here are both traditional grape varieties such as Grenache Gris (which makes very fine rosé) and Grenache Noir (try Pasquiers for a full-bodied flavoursome find); as well as the ‘cépages améliorateurs’ (varieties introduced in the last twenty to thirty years) such as Syrah and Merlot for reds, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc for whites. Guillaume Létang, Boutinot’s winemaker responsible for the Languedoc, is constantly on the look-out for producers who have hidden gems, visiting domains, seeking out new parcels as well as counselling winemakers before the harvest on for example, softening harsh tannins in reds or retaining acidity and expressing aromatics in whites.

The specific region which this wine comes from is the Agly Valley, not the most attractive of names perhaps, but connoisseurs will know it as a top spot within the Côtes du Roussillon. The grapes are grown on black schist soils at high altitude which also gives the wine an interesting smoky mineral edge.

Whilst our winemakers were travelling the rocky roads of the Côtes du Roussillon in their clapped out Landy and tasting through the wild dark reds of the region they came across this zesty gem of a white which wet their appetite and they just had to have.
