Domaine Rimbert Bino Blànc NV
The wine is fermented at controlled temperature with the addition of neutral yeast, then aged in tanks, lightly filtered and fined, and bottled the following spring with a small addition of sulfur.
Jean-Marie Rimbert, a native of Provence, arrived in the Languedoc nearly
25 years ago & managed the vineyards at Château de Flaugergues for 5
years until he saved up enough to purchase his first parcels of gnarled
ancient Carignan vines that had been nurtured in schist-laden soils for the
better part of the last century.
Today, Domaine Rimbert is 20 hectares spread amongst 40 diverse parcels each with different soil compositions & expositions. The village of Berlou (where Jean-Marie has his Chai) has the highest elevation in all of the St. Chinian AOC & is the only place in the region that possesses Schist rich soils. From the beginning, his objective was to cultivate vineyards with the utmost respect for the environment & his wines reflect all of the natural beauty, depth & flavor from those vines. The wines Jean-Marie crafts are a passionate testament to this region's multidimensional & ever-expanding potential.
