This fantastic white value is just another example of the exciting things happening in wine in the Languedoc. I won't go into a long diatribe about how maligned the region is, but rather focus on why you as a wine consumer should be more open minded to the quality that does exist in this vast region.
Husband and wife team, Laetitia Ourliac & Rodolphe Gianesini began their 15 hectare domaine in the early 2000's. They purchased a property in Escales in the northern reaches of the Corbières appellation.
Rhône varietals are king in the Languedoc, and in Minervois, Carignan, Grenache and Syrah are often blended together to make juicy reds that have the classic garrigue notes of the region. Beyond the reds, Fond Cyprès produces some white wines and rosé. After all, you have to keep some chilled wine on hand for those hot Corbières summers!
One of the surprising discoveries of Fond Cyprès is this delicious white wine called "Cyprès de Toi" Blanc. Made entirely from Chardonnay planted in calcerous and blue marl soils, and farmed organically. In fact Fond Cyprès has been farming organically since 2006.
This is just the type of white wine you want to drink during the warm summer months. It bursts from the glass with apple and citrus aromas. On the palate, it is fresh, with soft texture, plenty of vibrant acidity and beautifully delineated fruit.
There are very few places in France where you can get wine of this quality, farmed organically, produced with minimal intervention, all at an incredible reasonable price. All reasons why you can't sleep on the Languedoc, and need to try this white from Fond Cyprès!
