Chateau Montfin Cuvée St Jacques 2016 AOP Corbieres Blanc 14%. Certified organic
Chateau Montfin produces just a few white grapes - the majority are red. However there are some exceptional parcels of old Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. These are fermented in oak barrels to produce this wonderfully full and complex wine.
Aromatic and full flavoured with peach, almond and vanilla notes and a delightful freshness. Great with fish or white meat in a rich sauce.
Wines like this are produced in very limited quantities. Only the very best grapes warrant barrel-fermentation. As a result they are mostly enjoyed in the region of production. It is rare to find such wines in the UK.
This is what Oz Clarke had to say about the 2014:
"A fruity but dry delight."
