L'Autre Blanc 2017 Domaine d'Aigues Belles


Domaine d’Aigues Belles is a small family estate located just North of Montpellier and producing a fantastic range of red and white wines. L’Autre Blanc is a complex and subtle blend of the local Roussanne grape with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. It is a medium-bodied white with astonishing flavours of citrus, pear and flowers. The palate is well balanced, with a beautiful acidity brought by the Sauvignon Blanc. What stands out the most in this wine is the exceptional finish, lasting forever all around the mouth.

Bettane + Desseauve

17/20 "Coup de Coeur"

Gault & Millau

16/20 "We like the flavours of fresh fruit and flowers, the amazing finish making us believe we are in the sunset..." (previous vintage)

Jancis Robinson

15.5/20 "45% Roussanne, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Chardonnay. Picked at night. Yield just 35 hl/ha. Thanks for all the information on the back label... Broad, generous nose. Quite sweet-tasting and then some acid and a little chewiness on the finish." (previous vintage)

Gilbert & Gaillard

88/100 "Light gold. Young nose with predominant toasted oak backed by white fruits. Ample, full-bodied palate. Fat stuffing with huge oak presence. Wonderful sourness on the finish. A youthful, full Oc wine that needs to mature. Decant for those who can wait." (previous vintage)
