Description

Maison Moulinier – Premier  Cigale  Blanc  IGP Pays D’OC

Pays D’OC IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) covers a very large geographical area spanning from Nîmes to Perpignan and Carcassonne in Languedoc. It provides about 20% of total French wine exports, representing 65% of French IGP production. The area has a mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters, and most rainfall in spring and autumn.

Premiere Cigale Blanc is a simple yet distinctive wine, made by  a blend of Vermentino (Rolle – its common name in France) and Grenache Blanc. Vermentino offers aromas of pear, white peach, lime and pink grapefruit with subtle scent of citrus zest. Grenache Blanc adds herbaceous notes. On the palate, this wine is dry, fresh, with a crushed rocky minerality.

Excellent as a summer aperitif, this wine pairs very well with Parma ham and melon, seafood pasta, roasted fish with garlic and rosemary, spinach and ricotta ravioli, asparagus quiche, buffalo mozzarella, goats cheese, pecorino and feta cheese.
