Le Petit Cochonnet
Vin de France Blanc
Wine Type: White Wine
Region: Vin de France
Grapes: Vermentino & Viognier
Tasting Notes: Pale yellow with grey lights in color. On the nose it exhibits freshness and aromatic persistence. On the palate there are notes of grapefruit, pineapple, and mango.
Food Pairings: Pair this French white with pork chops, braised ribs, or barbecued meats.
Winemaking: After the harvest the grapes are destemmed and directly pressed to keep freshness. The alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at low temperature to keep delicate fruit notes. Aged in concrete vats before bottling.
James Suckling: “Very floral with a lot of verve and energy, this is a really refreshing Southern French dry white with tons of fresh citrus fruit on the medium-bodied palate. Very crisp and clean finish that pulls you back for more. A blend of vermentino and viognier. Drink now. Screw cap.”
International Wine Report: “The 2021 ’The Best Part’ Vin de France Blanc delivers fresh inviting aromas of gooseberries, grapefruit, minerals with hints of white florals, which all come together beautifully in the glass. On the palate this is clean and vibrant with a lovely combination of acidity and minerality which lead up to the bright finish.”
