From: Occitanie, Languedoc-Rousillon, France
Blend: Sauvignon Blanc
The 2021 L'Orangeraie Sauvignon Blanc is a proud representative of the L'orangeraie range, emblematic of essential grape varieties curated from the cooler, hilly terrains of Pays d'Oc. A beacon of modern winemaking, this wine is as vibrant in its flavor profile as in its ethos.
Taste: Visually striking with its bright greenish-yellow hue, this Sauvignon Blanc delights the olfactory senses with grapefruit, lemon peel, and boxwood aromas. It begins with citrus flavors on the palate, harmoniously balanced by its vibrant acidity. A dash of minerals, the slightest hint of orange, and a subtle menthol undertone grace the finish, making every sip a refreshing delight.
Pairing: With its herbaceous undertones, this Sauvignon Blanc finds perfect companionship in dishes that echo its character. Whether paired with ceviche, focaccia, or a light chicken salad, it shines, though we recommend savoring it alongside Zucchini With Ricotta-Basil Mousse for a sublime culinary experience.

About: Nestled in the serene landscapes of Pays d'Oc in Occitanie is the remarkable legacy of Château de Pennautier, an epicenter of Languedoc wines since 1620. For over four centuries, this estate has woven a tale of dedication, innovation, and reverence for nature, expressed beautifully in every bottle that emerges from its cellars.
Nicolas de Lorgeril and Miren de Saint Chamas, custodians of this legacy since 1987, have expanded beyond the ancestral walls of Château de Pennautier, overseeing a constellation of 6 estates (including L'orangerie) spanning 250 hectares across the picturesque Languedoc and Roussillon terroirs, including eight distinguished Appellations d'Origines Contrôlées, each reflecting a unique expression of the land.
The Lorgeril family's philosophy celebrates the synthesis of nature and nurture. As winegrowers and merchants, their wines are an ode to the pristine lands of Languedoc and Roussillon—landscapes of scrubland and mountains, refreshed by the Mistral, Cers, and Tramontane winds and tempered by the Mediterranean's gentle embrace. Pursuing balance, elegance, and freshness is embedded in their viticulture and vinification processes. This commitment is further exemplified by their dedication to sustainable agriculture, reflected in their 'High Environmental Value Level 3' certification, a testament to their unwavering commitment to environmental preservation.
