Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris

Roussillon, France

Vincent Lafage took over his family domain. Vincent’s estate is fairly big but among the 20 hectares of the family land, he pampers 2 small hectares according to organic and biodynamic principles, including the use of essential oil of sweet orange and herbal tea. Nested between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrénées, Les Salicaires benefits from a clement weather, a fairly high altitude for the area and of well drained soils that allow him to practise dry farming. Indeed, Vincent’s plots are on a high Quaternary terrace, with rolled pebbles on the surface resting on a clay-limestone base. (Coco Rico)

Slightly oxidative and iodized. The name of the cuvee comes from the Catalunya bird “stone curlew”, which has large yellow eyes and is hard to see because of its perfect camouflage. But he is easy to hear because of its scandalous singing!
