DOMAINE LES YEUSES

Colombard Viognier

“Colombard is one of the world's great blending grapes, and France is its birthplace. This shows how just how good it can taste in the right hands”

Wine Information

About the wine

Colombard is one of the most planted grapes in France, and today forward-thinking winemakers are using it to create fresh white wines. The inclusion of Viognier in this blend brings flavours of apricot. And the practice of picking the grapes later adds a honeyed quality.

 

About the producer

Domaine Les Yeuses is a family owned estate that's long been the favourite of Majestic staff and customers alike. It was initially built by the Knights Templar on the site of an old Roman villa. Today the winemaking is in the hands of Magali Darde, who earned her stripes in Sancerre.

 

About the region

Pays d'Oc is a large title that applies to the area roughly around the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. By choosing this title rather than the arguably more appealing Languedoc, the domaine gets to scrap many appellation rules and create wine with fewer restrictions. This means you get try something fantastic at great value.
