"Clos des Fées Blanc was absolutely stunning, and certainly, one of the most impressive whites I was able to taste from the region." - Robert Parker. Your Sommelier could not agree more with this quote. The Clos des Fées blanc, the flagship white of the domain, is incredibly rich, complex and aromatic. The nose shows concentrated aromas of honey, saffron, apricot and rose. The palate is rich and buttery, while remaining surprisingly fresh. An unbelievable white which cannot be compared to anything else. It is a pricey one, but the experience is unique. 2 hours decanting are necessary for the wine to express its full personality.

What experts say  
  
17 "100% Semillon. Really lovely scent and texture here – a touch of oak but more dominant is a wonderful honeyed blossom character. Rounded, dry but sweet fruited."
  
  
95 "Released as a Côtes Catalanes, the 2012 Le Clos des Fees Blanc was absolutely stunning, and certainly, one of the most impressive whites I was able to taste from the region. It has vibrant tropical, citrus blossom, brioche and honeysuckle qualities to go with a medium to full-bodied, seamless, layered and concentrated feel on the palate. Made from 100% Semillon that was vinified and aged in 50% new French oak, it has both richness and freshness. This awesome white will drink well for at least a decade."
