About him: Jeff Coutelou never stops delighting us with ever more nice wines! His whites are a rarity, but always exciting. This, made with Macabeu, Grenache Gris and Muscat and aged in exhausted wooden barrels, has a lot of personality. It has a very slight oxidative note which, combined with the freshness of the fruit and the structure of Grenache and Macabeu, make it quite compelling. A superb southern white!!!
