Canta 2015 IGP Herault - Domaine du Joncas

"Canta" (Song) is the incredible wine we are mentioning in the domain presentation. Please, forget everything you know about Riesling. This does not taste like classic Riesling, or like anything else actually. Coming from young vines planted on a very steep slope, it shows subtle and complex aromas of lemon, pear and passion fruit. A truly beautiful acidity comes in as well, making it a complex, amazing and elegant white. If you are looking for something unique and unusual, there is your pick. Very, very highly recommended!

Whar experts say    
   
 
Bronze Medal at ​Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 " Dry, crisp, steely acidity on the nose. Clean, citrus, apple freshness. Creaminess shows good weight, generous and warming. A gastronomic wine." (2013 Vintage)
 
   
  Rosemary George MW - Taste Languedoc Blog   "The grape variety is Riesling, which Pascal informed me has been allowed in the Languedoc since 2008.  He doesn’t know of anyone else making a pure Riesling. (...) This is certainly intriguing, not your classic Riesling, but with some honeyed notes on the nose and palate, and good acidity, with a certain texture on the palate." (2014 vintage)

"Òbra" (Chef d'oeuvre) is the high-end cuvée of the domain - and it blew us away. Made from very tiny yield (15 hectolitres per hectares, which is not a lot), it is a powerful, tannic yet very elegant wine. It exhibits multiple flavours of red fruit, prune, cherry, Provence herbs and spices. Incredibly complex with a very, very long velvety finish. Top...

"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!

This cuvée Nèbla is an interesting Rosé wine to have with Asian food, having a bit more character than a Provence rosé. It's nice, fresh, and fruity, boasting notes of citrus, raspberry and a hint of litchee. The finish is long and fruity, definitely a rosé for an aperitif with smoked salmon on toast or during a meal with Thai food.
