Ripe yellow peach, vanilla, acacia, and honeysuckle create a stunning, concentrated nose in this organic white blend. The palate is immediately soft and luscious, with flavors of peach yogurt, mango, and pear puree. The gentle finish lingers with sweet spices of vanilla, cloves, and cinnamon. Unforgettable wine!

The rich fruit and floral character of Le Petit Mod’Amour Blanc complements apricot chicken salad, baked halibut with mango chutney and seafood paella.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Domaine Modat’s 23 hectares of vines are located in the commune of Cassagnes, in the prized Agly Valley near Perpignan. Domaine Modat officially converted to organic agriculture in March 2011 and is in the process of converting the vineyard to biodynamic production. Instead of using herbicides, the soil is worked and plowed to encourage the natural processes of breakdown and regeneration. The domaine’s respect for the environment is also reflected in the practice of the “minimal interference” farming method. The soil is mostly white, gray and red gneiss (granitic sand) over a base of fractured granitic rock, an ideal terroir for elegant wines. The well-drained soil gives the red wines fine, silky tannins, a light structure and great freshness. The terroir is also well-suited for the grape varieties used to make quality dry white wines.
Production Notes
Grapes are hand-harvested, with gentle direct pressing at low temperatures and light settling. Temperature-controlled fermentation with wild yeasts takes place in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic is blocked. Very light filtering is applied and minimal sulphites are added. The domaine produced 7,000 bottles of Petit Amour Blanc.
Winemaker Notes
Domaine Modat represents a return to winemaker Philippe Modat’s Catalan roots, where his grandfather once owned vineyards. While studying law in Bordeaux, Philippe developed a passion for wine that started him on a journey to founding his own domaine. In 2007, he and his father purchased land and vines in Cassagnes village in the heart of the Roussillon. In September 2008, they built a modern winery using eco-friendly organic materials equipped with thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks and new oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
The rich fruit and floral character of Le Petit Mod’Amour Blanc complements apricot chicken salad, baked halibut with mango chutney and seafood paella.
