Calmel Joseph Saint Chinian Blanc Le Saint Festin is a Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Vermentino and Viognier blend from the rocky hillsides of Saint-Chinian. Rich and complex with peach, apricot and pear flavours. Subtle barrel ageing gives a smooth, complex, fresh wine with perfect balance.
The terroir of Saint-Chinian is better known for its red wines than its whites. But this apparently arid, rocky terroir is in fact extremely varied. The altitude, freshness and depth of certain soils is perfectly adapted to making great white wines and, after a remarkable first vintage in 2016, we now have the confirmation that this terroir can produce top quality whites.
Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs.
