Vermentino 2016, Domaine St Hilaire

Product Description

IGP Pays d'Oc Decanter Silver

ABV 13.5%

Vermentino is a little-known grape variety (also known as Rolle) that produces a pale green, floral, soft and mouth-filling dry white. Deliciosuly crisp and with a clean refreshing fruitiness.

This has been one of our very best discoveries over the past twenty years. Situated just inland from the Mediterranean at Montagnac, this estate was planted, in the late 1960’s, with a wide range of classic (and sometimes very unusual) grape varieties by the forward-thinking André Hardy. Some years ago, in 2003, Monsieur Hardy sold this important estate to a delightful English couple, Jonathan and Anne James.

Jonathan had been a successful QC and Anne had, for many years, managed the Monty Python team. Both had experienced far too much of the high-pressure life of London and wanted to take on another challenge. They arrived at St. Hilaire with their eyes wide open and under no illusion that this was going to be a pleasant, easy retirement venture.

The James have kept the existing team at St. Hilaire with the very talented young wine-maker Vincent Laurel being given much more of a free rein than he was under the previous owners. The secret of this domaine’s success is the considerable age of the vines and the consequential reduced yield, ensuring wines of great character and surprising complexity.

In December 2015 the estate was sold to Nick and Lisa Kent and their family. They continue to making investments in the business.
