Les Hauts de Janeil Grenache-Viognier

  • Variety

    60% GRENACHE BLANC - 40% VIOGNIER

  • Location

    The vineyards which we select come from Mas Janeil and Roussillon.

  • Tasting notes

    Pale yellow robe, golden glints. Complex and powerful nose, notes of flowers,
    peach and oak aromas (nuts and almond). Lots of volume but also fresh with notes
    of spices. The finish is highlighted by a touch of acidity due to aromas of grapefruit. A very pleasant wine.

  • The Vintage

    2016's climate has contrasted a lot with that of 2015, but finally offered beautiful surprises. Its first months have been be marked by a particularly mild winter in
    comparison with the average, only rarely undergoing temperatures below 0°C. Spring was subsequently rather cool and humid, all the while sparing the vines from spring frosts. With a half-hearted weather in April and May, flowering season suffered a slight delay compared to the previous vintage. Following this morose offseason, the particularly hot summer didn't really begin until mid- June.
    Contrasting with particularly high daytime temperatures, nights have remained refreshingly cool, including during the period between flowering and veraison (15°C on average), developing and preserving all the aromatic potentials of both grape varietiesked earlier presented floral notes of violets and reseda, those from Mas Janeil expressed notes in a more spicy register, with truffles, pepper, liquorice and even menthol.

  • Suggestions

    Veal escalope à la crème, chicken brochette with pineapple and cumin, grilled salmon in a white wine sauce.
