Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vines grow on the windswept edge of the Cesse gorge, at between 250 and 350 meters (around 1,000 feet) on white pebbled limestone and clay vineyards.  The limestone soil allows the vines to root deeply, giving aromatic and mineral expression to the wines.  The vines for this crisp, clean wine sit on windswept ridges high above caves with prehistoric drawings.  The rocky limestone soil gives great freshness to this organic wine.
Production Notes
Organic bee friendly grapes. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks with regular bâtonnage (stirring of the lees). Traditional corks.
Winemaker Notes
Rouanet Montcélèbre is a family owned vineyard of 22 hectares (55 acres) located at the base of the Massif Central, in the Minervois appellation (named by the Romans for the goddess of wisdom Minerva, when the Romans brought grape vines here 2,000 years ago ).  Audrey Rouanet is the sixth generation in her family to farm the vineyards and make the family wines.  Audrey took over when her father was killed in a tragic work accident.  She is an exceptional winemaker who studied in Tuscany and California! 
Food Pairing Notes
oysters, fried calamari, and pan fried fish
