Les Blanchais – white

Strength and balance

Its terroir provides its strength and its exposure provides its freshness. At the start of the 1980’s, a passion for the vine inspired Domaine Pellé to separately vinify our premier clos: les blanchais. We rightly believed that the complexity of the land is reflected in the wine…. These old vines deliver power and length in both the nose and on the palate. Citrus fruit and vegetal notes gently mingle with a subtle minerality without ever being too heavy or too exuberant.
A bottle that only improves with age…
