This stunning, organic cuvée was created by one of the finest female winemakers in the Roussillon. Crisp notes of citrus and white fruit make this delightfully dry cuvée the perfect, everyday white wine. A blend of rare Grenache Gris with Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, it will refresh and invigorate the palate. 

Château de L'Ou Blanc’s notes of citrus and white fruit enhance aperitifs and brighten the fresh flavors of grilled fish. The dry elegance brings veal blanquette to perfection.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Vineyards of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, and Roussanne grapes are cultivated using organic farming practices in marl and alluvial soils.
Production Notes
After destemming, the grapes are macerated for five days at 40° F. Fermentation takes place at very cool temperatures, between 55-60° F. The grapes undergo vinification and aging for two to three months in stainless steel vats.
Winemaker Notes
Loved by wine critic Jeb Dunnick, this domaine is run by the husband-and-wife team, Séverine and Philippe Bourrier. Séverine came to winemaking through raw passion, rather than family tradition and legacy. She studied oenology and worked in Bordeaux for a decade before becoming one of the finest female winemakers in the Roussillon. Philippe is the wise, earthy agronomist. Together, they restored an old château, revived vineyards and rechristened the estate L’Ou, Catalan for "egg," a reference to the oval-shaped valley surrounding the estate.
Food Pairing Notes
Château de L'Ou Blanc’s notes of citrus and white fruit enhance aperitifs and brighten the fresh flavors of grilled fish. The dry elegance brings veal blanquette to perfection.
Other Notes
Ageability: Drink now or keep until 2023.
