Florian André is a talented young winemaker, who has found a property with superb potential. He approached the religious order that owned the Chateau de Manissy, which is above and contiguous to Chateau d’Aqueria in Tavel. Apparently many had tried and been turned down by the Brothers. In this case, however, they were impressed by Florian’s resume and plans. The "Cuvée des Lys" is a blend of Grenache 60% Clairette 30% Syrah 10%, vibrant color, aromas and flavor. On the attack it explodes with a cascade of fruit, and then on the finish the Clairette brings a lovely balancing and extending minerality. Organic and biodynamic, the wine is an excellent aperitif or partner for Mediterranean fare, sushi or sashimi.
