VDF Blanc "Apparente"

2021
France
Languedoc

50% Grenache Blanc/40% Viognier/10% Roussanne. From certified-organic estate vines just northwest of the ancient city of Nîmes and just south of the Cévennes mountain range. The vines range from 10-30 years old, are planted on varying clay-limestone soils and have a generally eastern exposure. The terrain is flat to moderately hilly, with the vineyards (and cereal fields) surrounded by garrigue and woods.

The bunches are direct-pressed and fermented with native yeasts and without sulfur in concrete tanks (a tiny proportion is fermented and aged in used barrique). The wine is aged mainly in concrete tank. It is bottled unfiltered and unsulfured and usually lands at no more than 12%, by intention a light, fresh, easy-drinking style. Puech Redon opts for the Vin de France classification rather than the available IGP Cévennes.
