Description

The first white from Château Pas Du Cerf to be certified organic, Diane is the middle of three sisters than run the family estate, and the main winemaker.

60% organically grown Sémillon with 20% each Clairette and Rolle (or Vermentino as it’s better known outside Provence), Diane Blanc is pale yellow-green in colour with a subtle, nuanced nose showing grapefruit, white flowers and honeysuckle. Fresh and citrussy on the open giving way to a soft, elegant mid-palate, this has real fine white qualities, lithe and minerally with an underlying complexity — there’s floral, stone fruit, spice and herbal characters hidden beneath — finishing bone-dry and with a clean, zippy finish.

Try this with pan-fried scallops or roast cod for a real taste of the Côte d’Azur.

Producer: Château Pas Du Cerf

Pas du Cerf acquired its name in the 16th century when the King of France, François the 1st, visited the area for the marriage of his son, Henry, to Catherine of Medici, the locals impressed or perhaps bemused with the King's deer-hunting skills (pas du cerf meaning 'no deer'). By 1848, the first harvest of grapes was vinified in the house that remains, eight generations later, the home of the Gualtieri family.

The eighth generation comprises three sisters, Aurore, Diane and Marion Gualtieri, who are all involved in the family business. Nestled in the middle of a protected 700 hectare forest, the estate has around 80 hectares under vine which, since 2010, have been moving towards organic farming. Château Pas du Cerf is currently certified High Environmental Value level 3, the highest level awarded by the National Commission for Environmental Certification in France, and all vineyards will be certified organic by 2022.
