Unoaked to maintain maximum freshness and the primary fruit flavours. The wine displays white floral notes and flavours of peach and apricot. Refreshing acidity is balanced by expressive fruit on the palate and a vibrant finish.

The vineyards, which are managed sustainably, lie on clay-limestone soil on the coast alongside the sea lagoon, Étang de Thau. The combination of limestone soils and sea breezes help to temper the warm summer temperatures and maintain acidity in the grapes.

Caves de Richemer lies between the Mediterranean Sea and the sea lagoon Lagune de Thau on the coast of the Southern Languedoc. The name Richemer stems from 19th century tales of a modest winegrower, Henri Richet, who so quickly made his fortune in trading wines from the old port of Marseillan, that people gave him the nickname ‘Henri de Richemer’. The seahorse on the label is the emblem of Caves de Richemer and is native to the lagoon.
