Caroline Bonville is gaining quite a name for her wines from her small, 10-hectare estate in the Roussillon's rugged Agly Valley. That's in the foothills of the Pyrenees, in France's deep south. She's had extensive experience, working at St-Emilion's Château Figeac, as well as in South Africa and the States. That was before she headed south to start her own 'thing' in 2003. And since 2018, she has been converting her vineyards to organic. This rare white is a mesmirising blend of local grapes – Grenache Blanc for stony roundness, Grenache Gris for weight and spice, Carignan Blanc for citrus zing and Maccabeu for minerality. The vines, around 40 years old, are planted in top areas – Maury, Lesquerde and Rasiguères. A riveting, fresh white.
"An exciting new white from Roussillon's beautiful, high-altitude Agly Valley. Characterful and racy"
