Full tasting note and wine making –
The l’Or du Sud Sauvignon Blanc is a well balanced elegant wine is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown on eight different vineyards in the Languedoc Roussillon region in the South of France. It is grown on north facing slopes in this very warm region of France to ensure ripening is slower and to preserve the natural fruit acidity that makes the wine so intense and refreshing to taste. When the grapes are picked they undergo a light pressing followed by time for the lees to settle in cold tanks before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It is then left on the lees and has up to 4 months aging in tank before bottling.

Various co-operatives have merged since then and it has been in its current guise since 1967. Foncalieu produces wines under their own labels and also for other companies under their own label exporting worldwide.
