Beauregard-Mirouze, Corbières 'Campana' blanc

€17,60

Corbières ‘Campana’ Blanc is a blend of 60% Marsanne with 20% each of Roussanne and Vermentino. The grapes are hand-harvested, gently pressed (full bunch); fermentation and aging takes place in stainless steel only. Rich golden coloured white with aromas of ripe peach, wild flowers and herbs. Dry, textured on the palate, ripe and sweetly-fruited with a long, clean finish evoking wild meadow flowers along with mineral, stony notes.

Certified Organic
This estate, owned by Karine and Nicolas Mirouze has vineyards on the cool-nay cold, north-facing part of the Massif de Frontfroide in Corbières and the Grangeot cuvée takes it name from the vineyards around an old stone-built grain store in the small, cold Combarelles valley which is at the entrance of the Massif Fontfroide. The soils here are a thick layer of sandy, free-draining sandstone which is poor in nutrients. Yields are 50 hl/ha.
