Maison Ventenac - Marie, Pays D'Oc, France (2020)
75% Colombard and 25% Chenin Blanc, from clay/limestone soil. Fermented in 3000 litre stainless steel tanks, this is fresh, textured and delicate wine. With a range of citrus fruits, moderate acidity and a fairly broad mouthfeel. Slightly saline and rounded out by notes of hay.
Located in Cabardès, an appellation in the Languedoc affected almost equally by both Mediterranean and Atlantic weather systems, the wines of Maison Ventenac always display a lovely tension between fairly well defined, but broad fruit and acidity.
