Eric Texier Côtes du Rhône Blanc Adèle 2021


no added sulfur

Country: France

Region: Rhône

Type: White Wine

Grape: Clairette

These Texier vines are planted in the granitic clay-limestone soils of the Saint-Julien-en-Saint-Alban area on the western side of the Rhône River in the Ardèche. The bunches are hand-harvested and direct-pressed in whole clusters and fermented with native yeasts in cement tank. The wine spends 6-8 months on fine lees without any addition of sulfur. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with a minimal dose of sulfur. The name of the wine is a reference to Adèle Blanc-Sec, a French adventure cartoon heroine.

This wine is dry, medium-bodied and very aromatic. Pure flavors of apricot, apple, pear and wild herbs.
