Profile

Smell

Complex and elegant on the nose, Les Coopains Blanc presents aromas of wet stone, peach, and ruby grapefruit. There's a hint of candied ginger than lends some spice, along with green apple and dried herbs. There's lots going on here, so we encourage you to linger over a glass as it warms up a bit to enjoy the evolving aromas!

Taste

Medium bodied, with a pleasantly waxy texture, Les Coopains Blanc has flavours of pear, granny smith apple, and ripe peach. The citrusy acidity lingers in the background, providing a clean, refreshing finish that's complemented by notes of mineral and dried herbs.

Pairing

Try with a homemade French bouillabaisse, or serve alongside classic entertaining appetizers like asparagus and mushroom tartlets, which will enhance the wine's savoury notes.

Aromas and Flavours

Peach

Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.

Pear

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Grapefruit

As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Description

Located in the small, picturesque Languedoc village of Montpeyroux, CastelBarry is a cooperative cellar that was founded in 1950. When the original 75 growers came together to form the cellar, the five jobs that were created at the co-op made the winery the town's largest employer! Since then, the values of sustainable agriculture and the focus on high-quality wine has remained unchanged, and the winery pays tribute to these values with Les Coopains: a range of wines that highlight the region's star grape varieties. A play on "copain," which means friend or buddy, and a nod to the cooperative structure of the winery, Les Coopains Blanc is made from 100% Grenache Blanc. Related to the Spanish red Garnacha, Grenache Blanc is an important blending grape in the south of France, but here it's the star of the show. Unoaked and expressive, this white should be enjoyed over the next 2 years, served at about 8 C.
