Clos Bagatelle Saint-Chinian Blanc

Clos Bagatelle

Saint-Chinian Blanc

2022 Languedoc Rousillon, France, 75cl

Clos Bagatelle Saint-Chinian Blanc

A blend of 60% Roussane, 20% Carignan Blanc, 15% Grenache Blanc and 5%Vermentino: the 60 year old Carignan Blanc vines grow in limestone soil; Grenache Blanc vines are almost 50 year old grown in schist soil, whilst the Roussanne and Vermentino vines are merely 15 years old and grown at higher altitude in sandstone soils. The Roussanne is grown on a plot bought in 2003, situated on a high plateau with a very particular terroir of grès rouge (red sandstone) and chalk. This blend of soils and vine ages imparts mineral complexity in the wine, finely interwoven with layers of white flowers, almond, citrus and orange herbaceous notes. There is lovely mouthfeel on the palate with great elegance, a hint of buttery flavour with lingering minerality on the finish. The delicate balance between finesse and floral aromas means this will pair well with cleaner more mineral foods such as scallops, oysters and shellfish, or something rich and hearty such as sautéed creamy chicken and mushroom. A really versatile wine worth enjoying.

Behind the bottle: Clos Bagatelle

North of Béziers, in the Languedoc, the countryside becomes wild and beautiful in the area around Saint-Chinian. The 60 hectare property of Clos Bagatelle is located on the outskirts of the town and wine has been produced here for nearly 400 years.

The domaine had been passed from mother to daughter for five generations when Marie-Françoise, the mother of the current owners, took over the property and set about renovating the vineyard. New vines were planted, two new cellars were installed alongside the 18th century original and she was the first to extend the limits of the estate by purchasing land in the tiny neighbouring Muscat appellation of Saint-Jean-de-Minervois. During a period when few people believed that Languedoc wines could improve with time, she set about crafting age worthy wines to lay down.

Since 1995, the next generation, Christine Deleuze and her brother Luc Simon, have continued the family tradition, adding the Donnadieu and Assignan vineyards to the family holdings and producing wines of great character. Everything is hand-picked and sorted and there is minimal intervention in the vineyard. Christine, dynamic and clearly passionate about her wines, is working hard to increase the sustainability of winemaking at Clos Bagatelle.
