Chateau Caraguilhes - Solus Blanc
80% Grenache blanc, 20% Roussanne
Vinified and aged for 9 months in French oak (demi-muid) and amphoras.
Eye: A pale yellow wine, bright and clear, showing freshness and elegance.
Nose: The white Grenache has a unique character and an elegant complexity, with seductive aromas of lemon and grapefruit. After aeration, it is the minerality which comes to the fore, with subtle notes of white flowers and redcurrants. As the Solus gains power, it reveals a certain distinctive purity through notes of fresh almonds and toasted bread.
Palate: Rounded and vibrant, with a long mineral finish, a perfect expression of the Boutenac terroir.
Food and wine matching suggestions Rock lobster in aspic, coquilles St Jacques, sole with wild mushrooms, foie gras with quince jelly… or our favourite, turbot en croûte with herb butter.
