Reviews   

Wine list in the KLM World Business Class : “A real globally unique wine!

Oenologues de France : Beautiful nectar! What a Pleasure!”

French Wine Review : “Great volume in this crunchy-fruit Mauzac; ample pure, fat with lovely vivacity; very savoury and very well made. A nervous and seductive wine.”



Our notes  Château rives-Blanques is one of the first domain in Limoux to produce still white wine only with Mauzac grape.


Description from winemaker    Cuvée Occitania was the only 100% barrel-vinified mauzac in the appellation - and perhaps even in the world - until another brave producer recently took on the challenge of making a modern wine from this ancient, traditional grape.
