Critic Reviews:
"Easily one of the benchmark whites of the region, the 2012 IGP Pays d’Herault Blanc comes from limestone soils and is an eclectic blend. A serious effort that has both concentration and structure, it offers gorgeous minerality in its citrus blossom, floral and ripe orchard fruit-driven bouquet. Medium-bodied, with beautiful purity and focus, it deserves a classy meal, and should drink beautifully for 3-4 years, possibly longer, although I have no experience with aged examples of this cuvee. Don’t miss a chance to try this superb white." 93/100 (Wine Advocate)

"Known as the 'grand cru' of Languedoc-Roussillon, this wine has so much going on; from the intense and expressive aromatic profiles of apricot, peach and white floral scents to the multi-layers on the palate and the precise acidity. This wine displays lots of primary and vibrant fruits but has the structure to develop to something more complex and savoury." (Decanter)
