Before a great mariage we tasted a very nice white wine from "le Domaine des Enfants" from Côtes Catalanes.

The name of this wine is "Tabula Rasa". It means "white sheet", a term first developed by Aristote and then taken further by a british philosopher John Locke, standing for the immaculate status of a new born child.

In the colloquial language, Tabula Rasa stands for "making a clean sweep", which one might do to find closure with the past. The text on the bottle is an abstract of a 300 years old essay from John Locke, covering the human apprehension, and has been lent to the domain from the Library of the abbey Einsiedeln.  

 

 

The cork is perfect as you can see.

 

 

This wine is made with Grenache gris, Grenache blanc, Carignan blanc and Macabeu.
The colour is golden yellow.

 

 

The nose is very nice. It looks like a good white burgundy from Côtes de Beaune... I found flavours of honey, fresh yogurt and white flowers.

The palate is very good too. It relieves honey, toasted brioche, fresh cream and white flowers. I love it. The aftertaste is very long...

Finally, it is a very good wine, I did not know it but I was very happy to try it!! 
And I recommand you to try it!!!
