This pale, green-gold blend of white grapes entices with complex aromas of fresh white peaches and pears. The palate comes to life with beautiful substance, acidity, and finesse. An organic cuvée, this wine was crafted by a family domaine built upon four generations of winemaking wisdom. 

Esperandieu is a festive pairing for Andalusian gazpacho and sautéed veal with mushrooms in lemon sauce; or a more subtle companion to grilled fish and oven roasted vegetables.
