AOP Languedoc
90% Roussanne, 10% Viognier

A complex wine with aromas of citrus flower, grapefruit and mandarin.  Some of the wine has spent time in old oak barrels giving it underlying creamy toasty notes.  On the rich and mouth-filling palate are hints of citrus fruits, spice and hazelnuts with fresh acidity and a dry finish.

Serve this charming wine with fresh ceviche or a lemon risotto.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The rugged Cevennes mountains overlook these vineyards, sending cool winds during the summer and slowing the maturation of the grapes. The longer the grapes hang on the vine the more this increases flavor and complexity. The soil is calcareous (chalky), stony clay. The Ugni Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier and Marsanne parcels are at higher elevations with greater sun exposure during the day and cooler temperatures at night. The Vermentino parcel sits on a cooler northwest-facing slope with less sun, allowing the grapes to retain their freshness and typicity.
Winemaker Notes
Terre des 2 Sources began with two couples who shared a dream — to find the best land and wine-growing environment and to craft exceptional wines. The foursome realized their dream with an estate on high elevation just south of the Cevennes mountains with a rich diversity of soils, slopes, aquatic features and climate. Kirsten Creasy is the winemaker, and her husband Glen manages the vineyards. Kirsten has a long and successful career making wines in different places throughout the world. She is native to New Zealand and has made wines there as well as in Australia and France. She is part of the Languedoc renaissance making her own wine in this special terroir.
