Clos du Rouge Gorge L'Ubac Blanc 2017
Cyril’s top cuvée of white (Grenache Gris) comes from minuscule yields of 65-70yo vines planted in gneiss on the dramatic 70% hillside of L’Ubac. This laser-like fresh wine seems almost like a miracle. It definitely helps that the vines are planted on a north-facing hillside - Ubac is Occitan for the shaded side of a mountain. Mechanisation is impossible here, so viticulture is either carried out on foot or with the help of a horse. Vinified and aged slowly over 20 months in Stockinger demi-muids, this was bottled by hand with a micro touch of sulphur added at bottling of around 10mg/l. The finesse and freshness are astonishing, the fruit is so sleek and stylish, the finish goes on forever with gneiss imparting a subtle stony character. A wine that puts almost all white burgundies firmly in the shade.
