Plots with white, grey and red grape varieties, planted between 1963 and 2011 on slate. The plots were replanted with white grape varieties and some red grape varieties. Two years ago, Marjorie and Stéphane Gallet added Muscat, Grenache gris, blanc and noir, Picpoul and Cinsault. The wine gets its colour from the subtle use of the different red grape varieties This light pink comes from the terroir, not from the winemaking.
The 2021 Les Vignes Métissées smells of quince, apple, bread crust and fine spices such as coriander, cinnamon, dried ginger and star anise. The aromas are animating, intense, beguiling and open up a new world of vinification.
The tongue reveals a compact, spicy drop with lots of fruit and fine fruit sweetness. Distinct herbal notes of rosemary, juniper and thyme, which are even more prominent on the palate than on the nose, underline its Mediterranean flair. A wonderful food companion to purist herbal cuisine.
