2019 La Petite Baigneuse 'Juste Ciel' White Blend
50% Grenache Gris 50% Macabeu
Direct press, aged in concrete & stainless steel
Maury, Roussillon, France
La Petite Baigneuse (The Little Bather) is a radical shift in our understanding of Maury, located in the south east corner of France. It is a dramatically beautiful landscape, surrounded by cliffs and wild shrubbery, the cold northern wind of the Tramontana winds leaves its mark on the vineyard. Although Philippe Wies proudly makes the sweet Grenache we’ve come to love from the region, his dry wines are seriously compelling. Schisty soils, gritty and gorgeous wines.
