BERGERIE DE LA BASTIDE, Béziers
Bergerie de la Bastide is a project led by professor of oenology Claude Serra. Claude is a firm believer of the virtues of terroirs, a fact usually ignored at this level in favour of fashionable grape varieties.
These are real wines, packed with a strong personality and Southern warmth and flavours.
The Bergerie de la Bastide white is a blend of Vermentino (30%) and roughly equal proportions of Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. Discreet and elegant on the nose, it reveals typical notes of dried herbs, white flowers with a touch of lemon. The palate is bright with a lovely and fresh citrusy bite.
