The Orenia Duche d’Uzes Blanc opens with fresh and fruity aromas. The palate reveals mint, peach, citrus zest when drunk young, showing the Viognier character. By the end of the year, the Roussanne is bringing almond and honey notes. Rich mouthfeel with good acidity and balance, long length with a liquorice finish. 

Orenia Description

The vineyard of the Duché d’Uzès (the dukes were included in the peerage of France from 1572) is located to the northwest of Nîmes, and stretches west of the Pont du Gard, all the way to the foothills of the Cévennes. Duché d’Uzès is a small AOP (308 hectares) that was created in June 2012.

50% Viognier, 30% Grenache, Marsanne and Roussanne for the remaining. The parcels are located on clay-limestone ridges with good drainage. Strict pruning ensures beautiful healthy bunches and good ripeness. The cool climate allows all three varieties to reach maturity while keeping good acidity, crucial for primary aromas and overall balance. Harvest, done at night to preserve freshness, takes place in early September. A large pneumatic press is used to gently extract the juice and fermentation takes place in concrete tanks at low temperature. No malolactic, but contact with the lees until bottling early spring.
