In the glass, the wine has a limpid, pale green-gold color. Delicate aromas of peach blossoms, Anjou pears, and marzipan alternate with white peaches, honeyed citrus, and fleeting suggestions of jasmine and sun-dried macadamias as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine has an elegant, almost creamy mouthfeel, with a layered, mineral-laced core of yellow orchard fruit flavors that echo the nose, and a long, clean finish punctuated with seawater mineral grip and fresh fruit acidity.
About this wine producer: This is the story of Marjorie and Stéphane’s hope for the future of wine in their adopted Catalonia, and of their generous encouragement of grapegrowing neighbors in Maury and Rivesaltes (despite some who can barely disguise their palpable contempt for newcomers, and their jealousy of the Gallets’ evident success at their Domaine le Roc des Anges). “L’Effet Papillon is hard work, as if we don’t have enough to do,” Marjorie told us, “mais ça vaut la peine (it’s worth the effort). “The wine is beautiful, and the price will draw people to Roussillon...so that they might also want to try some bigger wines…like those from Roc des Anges…it’s the butterfly effect!”
Excellent. Susan enjoyed this also. SOLD OUT
