Divinus Loupiac White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Divinus Loupiac Blanc

From vines planted on a slope facing the Garonne valley, Divinus made the best. The grapes, concentrated by Botrytis Cinerea, allow the wines to have a unique complexity over time. Some bottles can age for decades..


Vintage
2006
label Divinus Loupiac white 2006
Appellation : Loupiac

Wine style

Full and Complex

Grape blend

Sémillon 93% / Muscadelle 5% / Sauvignon 2%.

Weather

Although the first quarter of 2006 was cold and wet (precipitation in March was 3 to 4 times greater than average), this was above all a hot year – in fact, the second hottest since 1950. There was a brief period of extreme heat in July, but the month of September was very mild and dry.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Golden yellow.

Nose

This wine combines Muscadelle and Sauvignon with a large part of Semillon. The result? A superb wine with a delicate bouquet, with pretty floral notes.

Mouth

Complex and long, it knows how to stay stylish while revealing a richness and power that will allow 3 or 4 years of perfect harmony with the subtle vanilla oak. Hints of acacia flowers, but also spices and citrus (grapefruit) are long and persistent. Able to stay in the cellar for a few years, but it is ideal today for culinary associations, as sweet and sour.
