In the foothills of the Pyrénées Mountains — not far from the Mediterranean sea — Clos del Rey is situated in the center of almost 900 acres in the tiny village of Maury. The estate has been owned and farmed by the Montagné family since 2001. The vineyard itself is nestled among a protected area of garrigues (rosemary, thyme, cistus.) Vines of up to 120 years of age are allowed to grow natural and untrained — in the old-fashioned way — known as the goblet/bush style. The vines are situated at an altitude of 500-600 meters in the shadow of Mont Canigou. Though, it is what lies beneath the vineyard that lends much of the character and complexity found in their wines. Le Sabina Blanc is grown on granite soils, perfect for the delicacy and finesse needed for this world-class white wine.

It is the granitic soils the Vermentino grows in that helps to give the wine its pleasure, power and freshness. Light gold in color with green reflections, the Sabina Blanc emits aromas of white flowers, tropical fruits and herbs. On the palate, there is beautiful concentration of just-ripe pineapple, mango and papaya complimented perfectly by hints of thyme and sage. There is a delicate acidity that gives the right amount of freshness without being bracing, balanced by a medium body which provide the perfect canvas for the flavors to shine. The Sabina Blanc is effortless drinking, the perfect combination of power, finesse and elegance. Enjoy with fresh seafood dishes like turbot poached in a tarragon broth or sautéed scallops stuffed with basil.
