Alain Castex's wines share a vivacity, energy and transparency of place. The Fleur de l'Age is a blend of bourboulenc, macabeu, grenache gris and grenache blanc, fermented and aged in 200litre amphora. Bottled in May 2020 at a particular point in the lunar cycle, its easy to get excited by this wine. Yes there are flavours we love and expect in white wines, like citrus, pears and apples. There's also something sensual about it. Smooth and pure, with a gentle salty grip too. Yes please!
