Les Hauts de Janeil – Grenache & Sauvignon

Grenache Blanc is primarily found in Roussillon, where it makes dry white wines that are rich and linger on the palate. This grape variety is able to withstand drought and strong winds well. Sauvignon is a quality white grape variety originally grown in the Bordeaux region. It produces fine white wines with exotic, floral and fruity notes.
