Introducing The Dog Duo:
A cracking red and white pair from the Roussillon, deep in southern France. A region much overlooked and brimming with promise and potential. (A red colour gift bag and wrapping tissue paper will be included)
Les Chiens, Blanc, IGP Pays'doc, France, 2022
From some of the best vineyards in the Roussillon, this distincively French white wine is crafted from native varietals to the region, usually a blend of Colombard, Vermentino, Marsanne or Grenache Blanc. The soils are rich in clay and silt.
A traditional white wine fermentation follows a direct pressing and racking in stainless steel without carbonic maceration.
No oak ageing
Slightly floral on the nose with a hint of minerality and pastry. Honeysuckle, peaches and herbs shine through supported by lovely texture, depth and weight. A salivating mouth, which is slightly saline and with juicy pear notes.
This stands up well to rich paté, creamy sauces and white meats.
