"Clairette de Die" is a natural sparkling specialty (Méthode Dioise Ancestrale). The wine is unique and very delicate. Light straw yellow color with notes of white stone fruit, apple, pear, white flowers and honey. Generous and aromatic wine reminiscent of peach, pear, elderflower and honey. Finesse and intense aromas of orchard and fresh grapes. The wine is sweet.
The wine is ideal as an apéritif or together with foie gras, blue cheese and desserts. The wine is also good for cocktails such as Mimosa or Aperol Spritz.
Monge Granon was established in 1985 by the Monge and Granon families, two wine growing families for four generations. The winery is located in the heart of Clairette de Die (located in the heart of the Rhône Valley). The vineyard is dominated by mountains, and is located on rocky and steep hillsides (among the highest in France). Their beautiful wines are due to the changing weather with alpine influences and Provencal sun, severe winters and dry summers.
