Inspiration White Wine (Tradition)
The Inspiration White is the estate's flagship white wine. Each year, it commands the special attention of the Cheylan family and our cellar master. It is a wine meant for wine lovers, and it is a wine that has demonstrated remarkable consistency through many vintages.
This white wine presents a rich palette dominated by exotic fruits and citrus fruits. It is a balanced, rich, and structured white wine that offers superb length in the mouth. The techniques used to vinify this precious wine are a true expression of our Château Virant expertise.
Our Inspiration White is pleasant as an aperitif and is also ideal with fish in sauce, papillotes, and all southern seafood dishes.
The Inspiration White is best enjoyed chilled so as not to alter its aromas.
Château Virant has an HVE 3 certification issued by the French government. This distinguished label is only obtained after having reached the highest level of environmental certification for farms. This label signifies sustainable production and practices with careful management of natural resources.
In 2014, our Inspiration White won the bronze medal at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris competition. In 2017, it won the silver medal.
The Concours Général Agricole in Paris allows farmers across France to compete against their peers in select categories. Year after year, Château Virant continues to medal with its wines and its olive oils, making it one of the most awarded estates in all of France.
The Inspiration White also won the grand prize for excellence in the National Vinalies competition.
The jury for the National Vinalies competition is made up exclusively of oenologists who rate both the quality and the typicity of the wines submitted for tasting. Winning a prize in this prestigious professional competition is the assurance of being a recognized producer in the wine industry.
Finally, our Inspiration White regularly wins medals in the Aix-en-Provence competition. In 2014, it won a bronze medal and in 2015 it won a silver medal. In 2016 and 2020, it won gold medals.
The Aix-en-Provence competition recognizes the best wines of the Aix-en-Provence PDO category. It is a competition of producers whose wines are judged by the professionals in the industry. Winning in this category identifies our Inspiration white wine as one of the most highly awarded white wines in the region.

J’avais goûté le rosé que j’avais apprécié. Les cépages du blanc me plaisant, j’ai commandé sans goûter… Très satisfait, j’ai apprécié ce vin d’été en apéritif. Floral, notes d’agrumes, vif, frais. Je recommande !

Grande découverte! ce vin blanc est tout simplement divin! Sec mais très fruité, délicieusement gouleyant, autant pour l'apéritif qu'en accompagnement d'un poisson. Ce vin est un des plus gais que j'aie dégusté! bien frais évidemment. Bravo et merci!

j'habite dans la région du Bandol et je voulais changer de région tout en restant dans le sud. Connaissant déjà l'excellente huile Château Virant j'ai commandé ce vin blanc que je ne connaissais pas, je ne regrette pas mon achat. j'aime beaucoup les vins blancs jeunes et là j'ai trouvé mon bonheur! en plus le prix est raisonnable. je reviendrai!

Je souhaiterais connaître le ou les cépages avec lesquels vous réalisez vos vins blanc ?
Merci de votre retour
Chacun des vins blancs de notre gamme est issu d'un assemblage particulier de cépages blancs à chairs blanches. Concernant cette cuvée, l'Inspiration, elle est élaborée à partir de Rolle, d'Ugni, et de Sauvignon Blanc.
Le Rolle confère un léger gras au vin, des arômes thiolés (agrumes) et de fruits à chairs blanches. L'Ugny apporte tension et fraicheur à notre cuvée et le Sauvignon permet le parfait équilibre aromatique en conférant notamment une belle minéralité à notre Cuvée Inspiration.
