The Mountain loves the White!

Here, on sunny days, if you make the effort to climb the foothills of the Montagne Noire, at an altitude of more than 300m, you can see the snow-covered Pyrenees in the early hours of the morning, like an endless alabaster sculpture.

From here, it is obvious that the mountains like white.

From there, we are sure that only a white grape variety can accommodate the minerality, graphite and gunflint, of its high altitude soils, too exuberant to marry with the peaceful tannins of a red wine.
From there, to choose the intelligence and finesse of the Chardonnay grape variety, which knows perfectly well how to sublimate a terroir with a strong personality and produce the greatest white wines in the world.
From there, to ensure the complicity of one of the greatest lovers of this grape variety so that he entrusts us with his best collection of vine plants.
From there, to the fact that this vine, never planted in the Languedoc, produces a wine at a maturity of 13.5° with an acidity of 4.5 (a C.V. of Chablis).
From there, to name this cuvée Gypse after the white and shiny stone that gives this wine its luminous finish.
From there, to the fact that this wine, by its limpidity and its precision, knows how to satisfy you, and perhaps make you vibrate, there is only one step... and it is up to you to take it!
