2019 Le Papillon Sans Soufre Ajouté Blanc
The name of this wine gives you a clue about how it was made.
In French the words ‘Sans Soufre Ajouté’ means no added sulphur. This wine has not had sulphur added to the bottle. The only sulphur in it is naturally occurring sulphur which is in miniscule quantities. The 2019 vintage is a particularly fine example of this blended wine. This vintage sees Grenache Blanc, Rolle (the local name for Vermentino), Roussanne and Marsanne used in the blend. The wine was kept on lees in old barriques for 5 months. This is a beautiful wine that is fresh and lively now but will continue to change character and improve well into the future. No filtration or fining has been applied to this wine. This is a great wine for people who have developed a reaction to sulphur.
