Domaine Laroque D'Antan IGP Cote du Lot Nephele Blanc 2017
This product is currently sold out.
Described by its growers as tasting like “crystalline limestone soaked in sunshine”, this remarkable white is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Gris, Mauzac and Verdanel. The two Sauvignons account for three-quarters of the blend (the Blanc cuttings were sourced from the great limestone and flint vineyards of Dagueneau, Cotat and Vacheron in the upper Loire). The white portion of the vineyard is two hectares on the upper slope where the fractured Kimmeridgian is covered by just 20cm of workable topsoil before the vine roots tap into the rock below.
