4.2 on Vivino
The name "Les Argillats" comes from the Latin "potter’s earth" which reflects the composition of this plot which is made up of clay and thick limestone debris.
With its delicate pale and crystalline gold colour, this Pinot Blanc skilfully instils notes of apricot, peach, citrusfruit, toasted bread and star anis. The entry delivers a lovely, dynamic and saliva inducing attack. This natural energy is mastered from the mid-palate onwards by a full body with good flesh. The finish persists forever, ravishing! This would go well with a dish of red mullet with fennel, or rabbit with tarragon. It would be equally fine with foie gras either pan-fried or in a terrine, or with shellfish. Bon appétit! Drink now or over 10-12 years depending on the vintage.
