Type: Orange Wine
Grape: Grenache Blanc/Muscat
Les Cigales dans la Fourmilière is the domaine of Ivo Ferreira and Julie Brosselin. Based in Montpeyroux, in the Languedoc. Julie and Ivo make wines both separately and as a team. The wines are a wonderful expression of the French Mediterranean climate, reflecting the warm sun and proximity to the sea.
The Escarpolette is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Muscat. With 2 weeks on the skins, this orange wine has incredible aromatics--white flowers, peaches and apricots--from the Muscat. Medium bodied and a bit saline, with beautiful nectar-like quality.
