In the heart of Saint-Chinian appellation in Languedoc, Saint-Cels is more than a vineyard. It is a “family story”. With its exceptional and diverse terroir, nature offers them all the components necessary for a fabulous alchemy. A diversity of soils, schistous hillsides, limestone-clay valleys around Castelbouze, and rolled pebbles along the rivers of Touloubre and Vernazobre. A Mediterranean climate, hot and dry summers, tempered by the freshness of the nights. This large thermal amplitude favours an optimum maturation, The Tramontane, a dry and cold north wind naturally maintains healthy vines “Les Confidentielles” come from their most qualitative plots. These cuvees look like little glowing stars that glance for the pleasure of your eyes and palate.
Tasting Notes ... Clear, star bright, pale yellow with golden hues. The first nose is intense and complex with dominant notes of white stewed fruits (pears), white flowers (Acacias) and boxwood aromas. After aeration subtle hints of wood and vanilla appear delicately intermingled to give a complex soft nose. The first palate is mouth filling, with tannins coating the sides of the mouth nicely. The same richness of aromas is found in mouth giving a harmonious balance. Good length due to a nice sensation of freshness intermingled with soft toasty oak and vanilla flavors. A stunning wine shining like a thousand stars.
