Château Rives-Blanques, Occitania Mauzac 2016
Occitania was Limoux’s first modern non-sparkling white wine made from the traditional Renaissance grape variety : Mauzac. Pure apple skin and pear aromas, with notes reminiscent of the gorse delineating the boundaries of these fields. " Truly unique", KLM’s award-winning wine list.


Château Rives-Blanques is named after one of the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees dominating its horizon. The domaine's house dates back to the 19th century and is located 20 minutes away from two major sites classified as World Heritage : the spectacular medieval walled city of Carcassonne and the famous Canal du Midi. The landscape is an unspoilt composition of vineyards jostling with sunflowers fields and fruit trees with the Pyrenees as an impressive backdrop. Jan and Caryl Panman have lived and worked in a dozen countries on four continents before Limoux's wines and its beautiful countryside stopped them in their tracks. They are involved in every stage of the wine-making miracle at Rives-Blanques, complementing the talents of their team. The domaine is well known for methods which protect the environment and is officially recognised for the reasoned treatment of their vines. Mauzac, Limoux's indigenous grape, is difficult to vinify as an interesting still wine for the same reasons that make it such a good base for sparkling wines: high acidity and a fairly neutral taste. By encouraging the Mauzac on the lowest south-facing slopes to reach an unusually high level of ripeness, the Domaine Rives Blanques is able to produce this unique dry, fresh still wine.
