Armorica, the mythical land that the Romans called modern-day Brittany, was first planted to grape vines around 2000 years ago. With the conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar, the Romans moved swiftly to plant vineyards all over France, including in areas considered today to be too cold for wine production, such as Normandy and Brittany. These vineyards supported the Roman soldier (who was due a daily ration of wine) and the settlements they left behind to keep the peace. With climate change, vines are again creeping back north into the heart of ancient Armorica.
Varietal(s): Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris
Taste: The nose is able to conjure memories of a day spent on a white sandy beach. The fabulous bouquet offers undeniable peach juice, tomato seed, basil, cilantro, and white flowers. Across the mercurial palate, sea spray and saline qualities mingle with citrus-rich flavors of lime and lemon juice.
