Pale gold in colour, but with a luminescent quality. Aromas are floral – acacia, lemongrass and orange blossom prevail. Fruity, round and buttery, with clear notes of peach, lemon zest, almond butter, spice. The finish has a lovely tension between a saline tang and minerality. For food matching, it perfectly complements grilled fish, white meat or a cheese platter.
“This is a concentrated, lean but rich wine with nothing obvious or overdrawn about it…Capion Blanc looks set to join the select band of fine Languedoc whites.”
