L'Autre Blanc IGP d'Oc Domaine d'Aigues Belles

L'Autre Blanc 2017 Domaine d'Aigues Belles


It is impossible for us to say if we prefer "Le Blanc" or "L'Autre Blanc" - they are both exceptional white wines, yet quite different from each other - don't hesitate to try them both and come back for more later on! 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)

    Cuvée Classique is the most typical Languedoc wine from the Domaine, although it is surprisingly smooth, remaining medium-bodied. Given the exclusive use of local grapes and the ideal terroir, it benefits from the Languedoc appellation. It shows beautiful aromas of ripe black fruit, forest and spices, with a long finish. Tannins are supple, elegant and...

    For this exciting red wine, the winemaker of Domaine d’Aigues Belle is blending the Bordeaux grape Merlot with local old-vines of Grenache and Syrah. The terroir is in the Languedoc appellation, but the wine is “only” an IGP Pays d’Oc to allow any grape in the mix. The result is a delicious and round red wine, benefiting from a Bordeaux lookalike...

    Cuvée Nicole is a similar concept to Cuvée Lombarde: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are blended with the Syrah grape, which brings a lovely spicy character. Like all red wines of the Domaine, it spends time in oak barrels to pick up tannins and enhance the structure. Aromas of black fruit end up on a toasted finish, which lasts on the palate. A beautiful...
