Vignes de St Pierre Blanc 2018 Wine Review

This wine review is of the Vignes de St Pierre Blanc from the 2018 vintage and the Pays d’Oc in the south of France. It is a blend consisting mostly of grenache blanc, vermentino and chasan. Chasan you say? It is a crossing between chardonnay and palomino it seems, from the Languedoc. I had not heard of it either. To complete the blend, there are also contributions from mauzac (used in the sparkling wines of Limoux), sauvignon blanc and chenin blanc. In the glass, the wine has aromas of green fruit, floras and lychee, the first of these perhaps from its vermentino and sauvignon contributions. The palate is dry, unoaked, broad and full bodied. It has medium acidity, moderate alcohol (12.5) and a floral and saline finish. This wine is intended for and will suit early drinking. Rating: Good. Website: Sol Y Vino, Vivino, Wine-Searcher.
