Clairette, vermentino and bourboulenc, three Mediterranean grape varieties which ripen late and combine acidity, low degrees and volume, make up this mineral, crisp and racy white. A southern expression of freshness. The fine and tonic nose, between flowers and citrus, introduces a remarkably balanced mouth between volume and freshness.

Seafood heaven! Grilled halibut with pineapple-red pepper salsa; shrimp salad with chutney mayonnaise; seabass-cabbage spring rolls with ginger and chili dipping sauce.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Cool lands exposed to the north, at the bottom of the valley, ideal for a white wine
Production Notes
Hand harvested grapes are lightly pressed, aged on the lees in steel tanks, with 10% going into neutral oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes
Borie La Vitarele was founded in 1990 by Jean-François and Cathy Izarn and is comprised of 18 hectares of vines in the AOP Saint-Chinian. They have produced organically and biodynamically since 1998, focusing on protecting the biodiversity of the area in a global living approach. The couple have made Borie la Vitarèle a real place of creation, stripped of the superfluous and frills, of which the wines are the perfect reflection. Since the accidental death of Jean François in April 2014, Cathy and her daughter Camille have managed the estate with four hands, supported by a trusted team. Since 2017, it is Camille who vinifies the wines of Borie la Vitarèle.
Food Pairing Notes
Seafood heaven! Grilled halibut with pineapple-red pepper salsa; shrimp salad with chutney mayonnaise; seabass-cabbage spring rolls with ginger and chili dipping sauce.
Other Notes
Ageability: Drink now or keep through 2023.
