    This white cuvée, named “Pas des Louves” (“path of the she-wolves”), is made from a blend of Roussanne, Macabeu, Bourboulenc and Clairette. The severe weather conditions in Corbières and a terroir composed of rocky limestone terraces, result in yields which are naturally low with very limited production. Pas Des Louves is strongly marked by the environment, offering great complexity and texture (from fine lees contact during fermentation). Dry with a compelling stoney minerality, powerful herbal bouquet, notes of bruised yellow apple, and a touch of salinity from the Mediterranean sea breezes. A complex wild white to pair with simple dishes.
