In 1998 Diane de Puymorin left her corporate career in Paris for a degree in agronomy and a life as a winemaker on the old estate of Domaine de la Petite Cassagne in the Costières de Nîmes, the southernmost appellation in the Rhône Valley. The vineyards of La Petite Cassagne had been farmed organically for years and expect to have organic certification for the 2019 vintage. In addition, the domaine is one of few producers to be carbon neutral, powering the winery entirely with solar energy, and using recyclable packaging and water-based inks. Along with her husband, Mathieu Chatain, and their five daughters, Diane farms 50 hectares to the southwest of the city of Nîmes, in the area known as Saint Gilles. A blend of vermentino, grenache blanc, and roussanne, fermented and aged in tank, this white is medium-bodied and dry, with flavors of orchard fruit and a nutty finish with hints of honeycomb. Organically grown.
