Château Trillol

AOC Corbières White

High in the hills of the Corbières, in a stunning corner of south west France, Château Trillol has been the Sichel family property since 1990. At 400m above sea level, the vineyard is located in two of the Corbières terroirs: Termenès and Quéribus. Here thelocal grape varieties, Roussanne and Maccabeu (harvested by hand), result in an authentic wine that is packed with character and a strong sense of place. A very aromatic wine with aromas of white flowers and exotic fruit. Intriguing and very versatile!

    TASTING NOTES

    A pale yellow colour. Clearly outlined, subtle nose of wild blossom and lemon verbena accompanied by a hint of mild spice and white fruit. On the palate, the attack is supple and rounded, beautifully soft and full but with fine acidity. Extract lends additional character, with peach and apricot aromas evident at the finish. An excellent white wine that will be expressing its full potential from autumn 2017.

    AGEING

    A complex blend best drunk within two years after vintage.

    TASTING NOTES

    A limpid, brilliant pale gold with greenish tints. The bouquet is floral – lemon verbena evolving to ripe pear. The attack is as supple as ever, beautifully fresh and with a hint of minerality. The aromas evolve to suggest white-blossomed fruit, with a slightly buttery flavour. A fresh, very elegant wine, finely structured. Ideal with tapas, grilled sardines or anchoïades. Pairs well with fish dishes, shellfish and sushi. Delicious also as an accompaniment for hard cheeses, as well as ewe’s and goat’s cheese.
