Tasting Notes

Le Havre de Paix - literally 'Safe Heaven' - evokes images of warmth and sunshine. The white wines from Gascony have a classic light freshness, somewhat reminiscent of White Bordeaux, but with a soft, smooth character.

Colour

Clear and brilliant, very pale yellow with green lights.

Nose

Notes of white pears, peaches and white flowers.

Palate

Dry wine, fine and lively, with white pear aromas.

 

Production

The grapes are harvested before they are ripe for perfect health and then crushed rapidly at a low temperature. Fermented at a very low temperature (12 - 17° C) to preserve all the aromas. Rapidly fined and conserved at a low temperature.

Soil

Undulating area, with mainly 3 types of mostly clay-chalky soils.
