‘Margalh de Bassac’ Vin de France, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Côtes de Thongue, Languedoc 2017
François Delhon et Philippe Leca, Margalh de Bassac
Situated at Puisalicon, a small medieval village in the heart of the Languedoc, South of France, equidistant from the three towns of Beziers, Pézénas and Bédarieux, the Domaine BASSAC cultivates the family estate as it has done with the same passion for several generations. The Bassac vineyards cover some 80 hectares (200 acres) consisting of a wide variety of soil types around Puisalicon and the neighbouring village of Thézan-les-Béziers. The varied and original mix of vines at Bassac takes into account the specific nature of the individual terroirs -resulting from a combination of climate, soil and geographical situation. Because of our commitment to produce authentic wines that reflect their terroir and because we work with a respect for nature and for the subtle balance that alone enables the vine to grow in secret harmony with its soil, we have chosen to cultivate our vineyards organically. Our cellars, situated in the heart of Puisalicon itself, are housed in a traditional building that down the generations has been enlarged and continues to be adapted. Throughout the year the wines are treated with the utmost care. Blended, racked and clarified, they are then bottled on the estate using our own equipment. When the wines from Domaine Bassac fully achieve that special balance which is the true expression of the terroir, the vines and of the men and women involved, then that is when we are happy – happy to have you taste our wines, happy to have you share our passion.
Aromatic nose with citrus fruit, stone fruit, and some floral notes. Lively and pure mouthfeel, with lots of fruit and freshness throughout.
