Introducing Felicette the Cat wine duo! (Gift bag and wrapping tissue paper included)
Felicette, Grenache Blanc, IGP Côtes Catalans, Languedoc, France, 2021
The vineyard is planted on the plains and foothills in the south of France, between the Pyrénées and the Mediterranean Sea between Narbonne and Beziers. The area benefits from two distinctive climates that allow the production of a large diversity and styles of wines: the Mediterranean climate for ripe and juicy wines and the Atlantic climate around Carcassonne for more structured and mineral wines. Clay - limestone soils, vines grown Cordon de Royat, a plant density of between 4000 and 5000 vines/ha, yield of 75 hl/ha.
The wine benefits from a period of cold skin contact and maceration. Pressing of the Grenache Blanc grapes is carried out in a pneumatic press with separation of free-run juice from pressed must. Cold static must settling then a settling on the fine lees with stirring to highlight the richness of the wine. The wines are then racked off the lees to prevent malolactic fermentation.
No oak ageing
Bright yellow colour with green highlights. An intense but fresh bouquet combining mint, pear, dry apricot and white flowers. A wonderfully fresh palate of mango and a hint of spice leading into a crispy lime zest finish. Unwooded and starry bright.

Felicette, Grenache Noir, Languedoc & South West, France, 2021
We produce Félicette in the South-West of France, between Narbonne and Beziers, with its hot and dry mediterranean climate influence. Soils are sandy and silty as well as a chalk/ clay mix on the hillside vineyards.
The grapes are harvested, destemmed and then either hot macerated to extract colour a beautiful dark red colour, and some are cold fermented to get the best possible varietal fruit extraction. The fermentation is then conducted at controlled temperature with gentle pumping overs to extract only the better tannins. The different pressings are then blended in December and aged in stainless steel tank to preserve fruit and round tannins. No oak treatment whatsoever. Just clean star bright fruit.
No oak ageing
Bright red colour with purplish tones. A 'booster' powered nose of violets and red fruits. The Grenache launches fruit flavours of raspberry and plum. Medium-bodied on the palate, soft and juicy. A truly stellar red.
