Tasting Notes

Les Figues is reference to the massive, aged, fig tree which dominates the landscape of the main house on the estate. From the Southern Rhone, “Les Figues” Blanc is a luscious blend of 45% Viognier, 40% Roussanne, and 15% Clairette, grown in calcareous clay soils. Fifty percent (50%) of the wine is aged briefly in oak, then blended back into the remaining tank wine, just before bottling. The vineyards are in the process of being certified organic.

There is plenty to like about this wine, and shows as a great alternative for Chardonnay lovers. Lively aromatics and rich mouth feel display a range of aromatics and flavours, including honey, beeswax, peach, tangerine, apricot, and mango, balanced by subtle spiciness from the wood aging. Some stony minerality and zesty acidity. Medium-bodied wine with a very long finish. This is a great food wine.

Food Pairings

Grilled shrimp, scallops, mild flavored fish, richer chicken dishes, and goat cheese.
