Domaine Padié - Tourbillon de la Vie Blanc '20 - Roussillon, France


Maccabeu, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Tourbat

In the rugged hills of the Roussillon, a quite winemaking revolution is taking place. The region was once known for producing seas of fortified 'Vin Doux Naturel' but its declining popularity has seen vineyards abandoned and towns depopulated. However, the region is dotted with parcels of old vines capable of producing extraordinary wines. These have attracted producers such as Jean Phillipe Padié, who farms 18ha of vines divided up into 30 parcels around the town of Calce.

This cuvée is made with grapes purchased from local growers in the local area. The blend is a combination of varieties that are relatively unknown outside of the Roussillon. Maccabeu adds acidity and freshness, Grenache Blanc and Gris give texture, and Tourbat contributes smokiness.

Tasting notes : Peach, floral, smoky. Medium-bodied with vibrant acidity. 

Food pairing : Try with fresh cheeses like Fleur de Maquis (a sheep's milk cheese rolled in dried herbs).

  • Grapes : 40% Maccabeu, 40% Grenache Blanc and Gris, 20% Tourbat
  • Viticulture : Practising organic
  • Harvesting : Hand
