Bastide du Claux Barraban Luberon Blanc 2017
Bastide du Claux was born in 2002 and is located in the heart of the Luberon National Park in the high hills of western Provence. Sylvain works a diverse group of parcels totaling 15 ha, planted to 14 different varietals scattered throughout the region.
Southwest-facing terraces surrounding the village of Ansouis, the north-eastern slopes near the village of Motte d’Aigues, and gravel deposits near the village of Cabrières d’Aigues.
Sandy-clay soils above clay sub-soils locally known as "Safres"
The nose, pleasant and open, exhales aromas of white flowers and fruits, acacia, peach, pear, all slightly honeyed. Here we have a beautiful maturity and pretty clean and delicate aromatic expression.
In the mouth, the wine is very pleasant, with suppleness and roundness; it is oriented towards a nice aromatic amplitude with aromas of fruits like white grapefruit, dried thyme, and white flowers. Ends with a more southern finish, marked by spices.
