Impressions: We like to divide the palate experience of skin contact/orange wines into 2 camps: those that drink more like rosés and those that drink dry like a red wine. This 100% Muscat spends over 1 week on the skins and leans towards the former. Highly aromatic, it opens with highly expressive notes of ripe apricots, tangerines, almond blossoms and dried herbs de provence. A racy, lean and juicy palate elegantly sways towards a lengthy dry, salty and floral finish.
Les Enfants Sauvages came about rather by accident after Carolin and Nikolaus' search for a place in the sun resulted in them falling in love with this property with 8 hectares of vines near Fitou, a coastal town in the south of the Languedoc-Roussillon. This was a far cry from their life in Germany where Nikolaus worked in his family's leather business. Carolin moved away from her work as an architect and took a course in Oenology, and so, Les Enfants Sauvages was born with their first vintage bottled in 2002.
