Vignes de Ratier – white

A terroir apart

A sunny terroir (southwest facing) in the commune of Morogues where the bedrock lies just centimetres below our feet ; here we are among the Ratier vines. A full bodied wine, where notes of fleshy white fruits are underlined by hints of pepper and linked to a unique minerality. Here the grape is demure and allows the richness of this special terroir to shine through. A richness that takes shape and increases year on year.
