M Trignon White

The Roux Family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate; a qualitative approach is also underway.
In 2006, the familly Quiot charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail, wish to perpetuate Château du Trignon.

VERY GOOD
"VINTAGE 2012 - 87 POINTS - VERY GOOD - Clearly vegetal and also floral nose with very light yellow fruit notes and very light petrol tones. Ripe, very sweet, almost somewhat creamy fruit, delicate touch and very fine acidity, floral, somewhat herbaceous and candied-almond tones, good persistence, certain depth, mineral notes in the background, good to very good harmony."

"vintage 2011: Bright gold. Expressive nose of juicy citrus, peach and nectarine marmalade. Distinctive palate showing power and alcohol at point of entry then reverting to a compelling fruit dimension. Smooth sweetness on the finish. A delicious, balanced Muscat." [+]
