Mas d'Agalis - Le Grand Carré 2019
Primarily Terret, with some Chenin, Clairette, and Vermentino. A proper southern French white but without the weight or warmth. This is soft, delicate, and lightly perfumed. The perfect balance of texture, minerality, and freshness. Absolutely delightful.
Made by Lionel Maurel, a fourth generation grower who took over the family vines after stints working with some of the biggest names in the natural wine world across France. He primarily works with an 'infusion' style of winemaking, favouring gentle and light extractions as opposed to the more powerful examples that are common in this region. His wines are delicate, elegant, and fresh - real expressions of his immediate subzone and soils.
