Wine education: had you heard about the "Terret Bourret" grape?
This white wine is made of 45% Terret Bourret. This traditional grape from Languedoc, usually called "Terret gris", produces full bodied whites with crisp acidity. It was widely planted in the 1980's but rapidely declined at the end of the century. Some producers still use it in blends to give structure and freshness to white wines.

Equilibre is the flagship cuvée of Villa Symposia. Medium to full-bodied, it shows a very expressive and harmonious nose of ripe blackcurrant and spices, typical from Languedoc.
