Nuance 2015, La Cendrillon, Vin de France | Britt’s Wine of the Month

A delicious white wine with excellent freshness. Full-bodied, some “fat” and with a lot of fresh fruit. The grape blend is unusual: petit manseng, albariño, verdejo, grenache blanc and grenache gris. And these unusual grapes are of course the reason why this wine is a Vin de France.

Domaine de la Cendrillon (cendrillon = Cinderella) is located in the Corbières appellation in Languedoc and has around 40 hectares in production. The estate obtained its organic certification in 2013. The owners, Robert and Geneviève Joyeux, and their winemaker do quite a bit of experimentation. Not least when it comes to choosing which grapes to grow. Their explanation for the Nuance grapes is that they want more freshness in their wine than they think they can have with the grapes that are permitted in the region. Read more:
