Tasting Notes

Situated in to the east of the walled city of Carcassonne and in the shadow of the Montagne Noire (Black Mountains) lies Minervois. The village of Laure-Minervois is home to the winery Chateau Saint Jacques d'Albas a 90 hectare estate in the hills above the village. Some 26 hectares of the estate are planted to vines with the rest composed of forests and creeks acting as a natural barrier to their neighbors. At the winery, a small team led by owner Graham Nutter, craft superb reds, whites and rosés, all of which are farmed organically. The "Domaine d'Albas Blanc" is a blend of 45% Vermentino, 45% Viognier and 10% Roussanne. All the grapes are cold-pressed and vinified in stainless steel preserving the ripe fruit notes and purity of the wine. Loaded with stone fruit flavors, good acidity and medium body, this is for fans of folks who like freshness and zeal in their white wines.

    Situated in the Minervois, an oft-overlooked region within the Languedoc-Roussillon, the winemakers at Chateau Saint Jacques d'Albas favor a more natural approach to wine making, approaching the vinification process with minimal intervention. They limit yields to produce more expressive grapes and utilize organic methods when managing the soil and the vines. What you get is an intensely flavorful wine for an incredible bargain. The blending of Viognier, Vermentino and Roussanne creates a well balanced and aromatic wine. Notes of honeysuckle, lemon zest and stone fruit pop, while the bright acid is balanced by a roundness and overall medium body. Fans of unoaked Chardonnay should give this a try if you're looking to expand your repertoire and try something new.
