Ugni blanc, we are able to offer blends combining
several different grape varieties. It is by blending
at least 3 or 4 different varieties that we are
able to achieve an interesting balance.
Our COLOMBLANC, PUJADE,
JARDIN DE MARIE, LAMOULIE and PERRAS wines
are blends of Colombard, Ugni, Gros Manseng and
Sauvignon varieties. It is also this blend that
we sell as a Domaine des Cassagnoles generic.
Blends are created by Gilles Baumann. He selects
the various vats by tasting and determines which
combination would create the best balance according
to the characteristics of each grape variety. The
result is a complex, aromatic and long-lasting wine.
We presently have 2 bi-varietal wines and a number
of pluri-varietal blends.
is a very harmonious wine with remarkable aromatic
strength that is long on the palate. The 2 grape
varieties complement each other perfectly and
the result is surprisingly fresh. It is a lively
wine, with an expressive nose and complex mouth.
It may be drunk chilled, at 10°, as an aperitif
and is also a fine accompaniment to a large number
is more vinous. It is a flavoursome blend with
a strong Sauvignon nose and a full Chardonnay
palate. The result is both rich and complex. It
should be drunk at 10/12°, for pleasure, with
asparagus or scallops.
Another blend of white wine (Colombard, Ugni blanc
and Gros Manseng) is available in 5-litre or 10-litre
bag-in-boxes. It is a dry white wine that is both
fruity and supple.
