Domaine Maby "La Fermade" Lirac Blanc

Tasting: “Pale flint colour. The nose gives a buzzy, open aroma of pear with apricot, has a fat, southern nature, notes of lime, a drift of salt. The palate retains the squeezy, juicy nature suggested by the nose. This is fun drinking, a plump appeal at its heart, the length sound, too. It finishes clearly, some nuttiness there. The crop has been well ripened, and that shows in its texture and fatness.” (John Livingstone, June 2017) Blend: Grenache 43%, Clairette 39%, Picpoul 18%
