The vineyards are located at the foot of the medieval fortress of Carcassonne. The terroir benefits from a mild Mediterranean climate thanks to their altitude and the oceanic influence of the Atlantic. The Domaine de l’Estagnère Pinot Gris is a white wine with floral notes, to which are added spicy and toasted notes, due to the aging in oak barrels. In mouth, it is acidulated but very well-balanced, with a mineral finale which reminds the oceanic aspect of the wine.
It is the ideal pairing for fishes. Its acidity will perfectly counterbalance the fat of salmon for example.
