Alba 2015 IGP Herault - Domaine du Joncas


"Alba" (Dawn) was the first white wine experiment of the domain, and it is not a classic white Languedoc. Made from young Grenache Gris vines, it exhibits explosive aromas of lemon, exotic fruit and quince jam. A powerful minerality brings in freshness and finesse, with a long and buttery finish. We absolutely love unusual wines showing such a personality!

Whar experts say  
  Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2015 "Super fresh acidity with stone fruit, lemon, pear and orange peel notes. An easy-drinker." (2014 Vintage)  
 Rosemary George MW - Taste Languedoc Blog "Alba from Domaine du Joncas is a pure Grenache Gris, with herbal notes on the nose, and firm acidity and minerality on the palate. It was fresh and youthful with a long finish and plenty of potential." (2014 Vintage)
