PDO White Wine

Cuvée AOC Blanc

The quintessence of the Coteaux d'Aix

Learn more

The Cuvée AOP Blanc is a wine particularly appreciated by our customers and recognized by the professionals of the wine industry. Noële Cheylan, founder of Château Virant, is particularly fond of this wine as she confides to some of our close customers that it is one of her favorite wines. The reason is simple, it is a mineral wine, perfectly balanced. Its grape varieties, Rolle, Grenache Blanc, Ugni Blanc and Sauvignon, give it an aromatic mouth of fresh fruit, with notes of citrus and exotic fruit. Technicians speak of "thiolated" aromas, nowadays very appreciated in light-colored wines. As for the minerality of the wine, it finds its origins in certain plots of land used for its production. Indeed, it is not uncommon at Château Virant that the vines are planted in soils poor in soil and rich in stones.
