Domaine Lérys
Domaine Lérys Muscat de Rivesaltes, NV

Situated in the heart of Haut Fitou, on the route of the famous Cathare Castles, Domaine Lérys was founded in 1861. This family-run operation is made up of numerous parcels of land of which the average age is over 50 years.

Grape

100% Muscat Petits Grains

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Soil is 100% schist giving naturally low yields (25 hl / ha on average), with an extreme Mediterranean climate.

The Estate vineyard, located around the village of Villeneuve les Corbières, is composed of many plots whose average age exceeds 50 years on steep terrain.

Goblet trained as it allows stocks to protect against extreme heat and drought in the summer and maintains “freshness” of the night.

Most work is done by hand, pruning to harvesting, ploughing is done by tractor or recently by horse for some parcels.

Tasting Note

Pale yellow colour with green highlights. The nose is an explosive mixture of fruit and white flowers. Soft, very fruity and well balanced palate. Brings the sensation of eating the grape straight from the vine. A wine to drink fresh.

Food Pairing

Ideal as an aperitif or paired with fruit dishes and chocolate puddings
