Granges des Felines White – Piquepoul-Sauvignon.
Granges des Felines white wine is an unusual blend of grapes resulting in a dry and yet aromatic wine. The wine has a brilliant colour with a pale yellow tint and green hues; a fresh nose of white flowers and fruits with a lovely freshness in the mouth.
Its crisp and clean qualities make it very drinkable. It represents superb value for money.
The wine is named after the place where it is made: Felines Saint Marcel. Based on the edge of the ecologically delicate Bassin du Thau, Fabienne Capelloruns maintains her estate with a very sensitive ethos. Her abandonment of many modern techniques in favour of more sustainable and traditional practices is perhaps the core factor in her ability to produce wines of real quality. All this at a very reasonable price.

As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
