Description

Villa des Anges Sauvignon Blanc is crafted by winemaker Jeff Carrel at the Espitalet des Anges domaine in Capestang. Situated on the ruins of an ancient Roman villa, the domaine is owned by Jaqueline Menard de Ginestous, who married-into and is herself from a prominent Languedocienne wine-growing family.

Tasting Notes: This pure Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with aromas of citrus, fresh cut grass, green herbs and currant buds. Light in body but intense in flavor, it offers great tension and freshness on the palate.

Serve With: Enjoy amongst friends on its own or with goat cheese, marinated vegetables, a wide range of fish/shellfish, and more.
