Clos de Paulilles Blanc, Domaine Cazes
Fresh, floral and elegant are the words that spring to mind at the first sip of the Clos des Paulilles Blanc.
Delicate aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and ripe pears are underlaid by a steadfast and distinctive minerality, derived from the ocean breezes that roll through the slate-soil vineyards of Paulilles.
Perfumes of apple, spiced pear and pastry prevail on the nose- all promises that are kept on a full, flavourful palate. Elements of butterscoth and vanilla round out a lasting fruitfulness that is dry and smooth. The wine signs off with an exceptionally long finish- one that will tease, tantalise and linger long after the last sip.
