Blanc de Blancs celebrated its Fiftieth Anniversary in 1988 at the'Jules Verne' at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

This unparalleled wine, which has travelled throughout the world, is perfectly attuned to Mediterranean cuisine.

This is ancient wine terrain distinguished for its mix of shale and clay and absence of limestone.

The incomparable personality of Clos Mireille wines is no doubt owing to the estate's broad seafront location. The microclimate and sea spray provide highly favourable conditions for equally matchless white wines.

Grapes varieties - semillon for its fullness, mellowness and honey flavour. Ugni Blanc for its vigour and youth. Rolle for its smooth, fleshy qualities with floral, fruity notes.

The vineyard of Clos Mireille has 50ha of vines for production out of a total area of 170ha. The parcels used for the production of Blanc de Blancs slope down as far as the sea. They are levelled into espaliers to enable even tilling and planting.

Cultivation methods are traditional and the earth is mechanically tilled with the greatest care to the plant.

Vines are pruned and trained using the cordon de Royat or double cordon method. Hand picking. Highly selective grape sorting. Extremely delicate pressing in vertical presses.

Slow (alcoholic and malolactic) fermentation followed by ageing in oak casks. Bottled in spring of the following year then stored in cellars for 8-12 months.

A well-developed, complex, distinctive bouquet with rich fragrances of stone fruit, spice and wild flowers. Dry, supple and elegant on the palate.

Enjoy as an aperitif or to accompany grilled fish, fish soup, shellfish, oysters.

Best served at 8/9 degrees C.
