L’Orpailleur Blanc

Description

The one that started it all, l’Orpailleur’s original wine will charm you with its delicate hue, reflecting 38 years of winemaking expertise. The expressive bouquet of this dry white wine delivers aromas of pear and green apple as well as notes of boxwood with a round, well-balanced texture on the palate and a lovely refreshing finish.

The 2019 vintage currently on sale won a double gold medal in the All Canadian Wine Championship 2020.

L’Orpailleur Blanc
« One of Quebec’s first still wines with world-class quality. And this 2016 vintage, tastier than ever, is the perfect example that we can produce excellent wines on our terroir. Nervous, fruity and light in the mouth, it is surprising by its righteousness and its suppleness. »
