Albarino is one of a collection of 4 “atypical” grape varieties represented on the terroir of Château Cicéron: Cabernet Franc, Marselan and Verdejo, each with clone and root-stock selection adapted to the mosaic of soils.

Perfect as an aperitif, and with grilled fish.

Grape-varieties Albarino
Soil a stoney soil of the quaternary era
Winemaking The grapes are harvested by hand into small crates. The whole bunches are immediately pressed pneumatically in the presence of frozen carbonic gas in order to protect the juice against oxidization. The stabilization of the juice at 5°C lasts 5 days, then fermentation is set off and lasts for about 8 days at 16°C.
Tasting Notes The green-coloured wine has silvery glints, and its powerful nose is laced with hints of mango, lychee and peppery mint. Lively in the mouth with good aromatic intensity. Perfect as an aperitif, and with grilled fish. Serving temperature: 14°C.
