Calmel & Joseph St Chinian Blanc, Les Crus

Calmel & Joseph St Chinian Blanc, Les Crus

The Les Crus range of wines are from very small areas among Languedoc Roussillon appellations of Calmel & Joseph. The INAO studied and validated these, accepting an appellation name corresponding to a very small geographic area. From these prized terroirs, C&J have created very special wines here represented by the St. Chinian Blanc.

The terroir of Saint-Chinian is better known for its red wines than its whites. But this apparently rocky, arid terroir is in fact extremely varied. The altitude, freshness and depth of certain soils is perfectly adapted to the production of great white wines.

Primary aromas are evocative of broom flowers with a touch of oak that adds a slight smokiness to these floral aromas. Then superb minerality uplifts an aromatic palette that ranges from white blossom to stone fruit such as vine peaches or apricots.
The blend of four grape varieties gives complexity and fine balance to the palate, with notes of blossom and underwood reappearing on the lingering finish, and a surprising freshness that augurs great ageing potential for this wine.
