Lychee, melon, saline, white flowers. Soft + velvety palate with lime kaffir, daffodils and honeycomb on an apricot finish. Blend of mostly Mauzac and Chardonnay, with 10% each of Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. Limoux is the birthplace of the varietal Mauzac, although it has been declining in plantings. The vineyards of Closerie des Lys lie 50 miles south of the old walled town of Carcassonne in the Pyrenean foothills by the village of Antugnac. Closerie's vineyards are "mountain fresh", heavily influenced by strong diurnal shifts (warm days, cool evenings).
