Domaine du Météore Van Gogh Sunflowers Blanc
Grapes: Roussanne, Viognier
Domaine du Météore is a unique Faugères estate located atop a 200 metre wide crater that was created when a meteorite crashed into the area 10,000 years ago. The low-yielding vines grow in rocky schist soils that force the roots to delve deep in search of nutrients and imbue the wines with pronounced minerality. Winemaking is low intervention with the domaine certified organic and working towards biodynamic certification.
The Van Gogh Blanc is a special cuvée made in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, representing the link between nature and art, the South of France and Vincent himself. Adorned with a reproduction of Van Gogh's Sunflowers painting, this is a blend of Roussanne and Viognier with a delicate, mineral nose of flint which opens up to reveal flavours of lemon, pineapple and nutmeg.
