Saint Chinian ‘Les Terres Blanches’ Borie La Vitarèle, Siant-Chinian 2017/18
Borie la Vitarèle, Saint Chinian
Jean François Izarn has been running Borie la Vitarèle bio-dynamically for a number of years. The wines are highly underrated and deserve much more recognition. Here everything is very simple and honest; Jean François and Cathy are very generous and have a great sense of hospitality. The wines are made to the same ethos; nothing to hide, just a lot of hard work in the vineyards to obtain the best quality grapes, and honest winemaking to preserve such quality, with a mix of cement tanks and use of large oak barrels.
A total production of 350 cases per annum. The vines grow on dry chalky outcrops, surrounded by scrub and pine trees that lend the wine,
Richness, yet also elegance with a tempered tannin profile.
Grape: 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah
