L'Égrisee brings refinement and delicious freshness without excessive exuberance, a touch of class that perhaps explains the meaning of its name, “diamond dust.” This all-occasion white is balanced yet lively with aromas of white fruit, flowers, fennel, and almond.

Pair L'Égrisee  with goat cheeses, white meats, seafood, and fish for a feast of casual elegance.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
A beautiful, small, organic domaine, La Jasse Castel is situated in the hillsides near Montpellier, in the award-winning winegrowing region of Montpeyroux. The 12-hectares of vineyards is made up of a century-old Cinsault plot near the village of Arboras, an ancient Carignan tucked away amongst the Olivettes, a purebred Syrah on the edge of an oak forest, and a goblet-trained Grenache in the heart of the Seranne landscape. Because of its unique terroir, this area was granted its own Cru. Varying soils and different orientations to the sun produce different characteristics in the fruit. The soil is clay and the subsoil is quite calcareous. The soils are very old and influenced by the thyme, rosemary, and lavender of the garrigue.
Production Notes
The grapes are vinified, aged, and stirred in tanks.
Winemaker Notes
Winemaker, Pascale Riviere’s transformation from city dweller to winemaker was prompted by love at first sight—she fell in love with her first vines on the highest point of the Causse de Montpeyroux, and the nearby 17th century sheep barn. Standing tall against the wind, bathed in sunshine, La Jasse Castel overlooks the Hérault Valley. In theory there was no particular reason why Pascale should become a winemaker, yet everything led her to this. A former journalist, teacher and writer, she told us: “my growing desire to make wine and own a domaine came to fruition in 1998. Since then, every day has been magical, sensual. A wonderful discovery and a learning process.” For her, the word “culture” has found its roots again — the never-ending story of our shared humanity. Pascale is a founder and still part of a group of celebrated female winemakers called the ""Vinifilles.”
Food Pairing Notes
Pair L'Égrisee with goat cheeses, white meats, seafood, and fish for a feast of casual elegance.
Other Notes
Ageability: Drink now or keep until 2024. The name L’Égrisée means “diamond dust” and comes from the diamond powder used by jewelers to polish their diamonds into brilliance.
