About This Wine:
The wine is produced from 100% Melon de Bourgogne grapes that are sourced from a 3 hectare-vineyard.
The Granite boasts a white gold and crystal clear color. The nose is subtle and elegant with zest of citrus fruits, white flowers and spices such as ginger and cumin and there are notes of flintstone, dried fruits and toasted almonds. The attack is sharp and straight, the mouth is complex, an impression of great purity and rare elegance; very salty notes, chalky and slightly smoky notes, citrus fruits, a wine with the ability to be kept for a long time.

A perfect match to the following dishes:
Asian cuisine, fish curry, Thai white rice, cucumber raita.
Snail Casserole Sole meuniere & steamed crispy vegetables.
Brittany Lobster, wine and brandy reduction, smashed sweet potatoes with star anise.
Scallops in spicy breadcrumbs.
Spicy prawns, coriander cream.
Chicken Colombo.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"One of a pair of wines named after the rock of the vineyard, this offers great fruitiness, crisp lemon and a mineral edge that balances with the wine's fresh character. It is a delicious wine, still developing, ready from late 2019. Roger Voss" - (10/1/2019)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Tightly wound and very savory, with a core of lemon zest and honeysuckle flavors, while tangy fleur de sel and oyster shell notes give this intensity on the finish. Pure, showing impressive length. Drink now through 2026. 1,000 cases made, 100 cases imported." - AZ
