WINEMAKER NOTES | This family estate located in the Costières de Nîmes takes its name from a wild, aromatic herb “La Patience” that can be found throughout the vineyard. After a decade of managing the winemaking at a local cooperative, Christophe Aguilar decided it was time to make his own wine. Today Christophe farms 60-hectares of vines, these were the same soil that his grandfather farmed fifty-years ago, with a deep respect and understanding of its terroir.
TASTING NOTES | Pale yellow in the glass with a tart, fruity nose and dynamic mineral scents. The palate opens with crisp citrus, honey and peach flavors that are boosted by vibrant acidity and racy minerality.
PAIRING NOTES | Seafood dishes, hearty garden salads, grilled vegetables, soft-ripened cheeses, or simply by itself.
