Les Foulards Rouges "Soif du Mal" Blanc is a blend of 40% Muscat petits grains, 30% Grenache Blanc and 30% Macabeu grown on the flatter part of Montesquieu-des-Albères on decomposed sandy granitic soils giving yields of 20 hl/ha. To preserve the freshness, Jean-François stopped using oak for this cuvée, and tries to pick earlier (he knows how easily acidity can drop for this terroir). This cuvée has a beautiful nose, between white peach, lemongrass, limoncello, yuzu zest and freesia. The Muscat aromas are all nuanced. The palate is really fresh, with a bright zesty acidity finishing with a touch of quinine bitterness.
