Pale lemon-gold hue with a lifted floral nose of white flowers and acacia, leading on to a citrussy, lively palate of grapefruit, garrigue herbs and crunchy green apple. Mid-weight, crisp and elegant, with a lingering, rejuvenating finish. Delicious! 

Drink on its own, with pan-fried lemon sole in herby butter, or with goat's cheese.

Pays d'Hérault is a productive IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) in Languedoc-Roussillon that focuses on mostly red wine. The area also grows grapes - both local and imported from other regions - for appellation-level wines like Minervois and Faugeres. Mas de Daumus Gassac has been called "the Lafite of the Languedoc."

Clairette is an old Languedoc variety utilised in many southern French appellations. Because of its low-ish acidity, it is usually blended with zingier varieties like (as here) Sauvignon Blanc or Picpoul. Rolle (known as Vermentino in Italy) is a fashionable and distinctive variety whose perfume and acid-retention properties make it a valuable white grape in the Mediterranean's warmer wine regions.
