2018 Domaine Benjamin Taillandier 'Blanc' White Blend

A lovely mix of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris from the Languedoc. The soils are predominantly limestone, driving fresh, minerality through the wine. A combination of old, new oak and rich ripe fruit, leads to a beautiful long sweet finish, creamy with medium acidity. Strong honey and tropical flower notes, don't chill this too much as you'll lose a lot of that jazz! 12%

About the maker

Domaine Benjamin Taillandier, since it's inception 2007, has been farming organically and is now completely dry-farmed. This means none of Benjamin's vineyards are irrigated.

The domaine thrives by the Black Mountain (most south relief of the Massif Central) and stretches on twenty hectares, representing sixteen vines flourishing on south exposed terrace fields in mediterranean climate, growing on mostly clay-limestone soil, with occasional schist, sand and marble. The grape harvest is manual through twelve kilo crates which are gravitationally emptied in the containers. All yeast and lactic bacteria are indigenous. Benjamin feels that many of the wines in the Minervois AOC are too concentrated and alcoholic, and works hard to make wines that, while full flavoured, are lighter, fresher, and lower in alcohol than most average wines from the Languedoc.
