Cercius is made in partnership with Eric Solomon and Philippe Cambie from several sites throughout the Rhône valley. Cercius the Latin name for the winds that originate in the mountainous Massif Central to the northwest of the Costières de Nîmes. Combined with the thermal breezes from the Mediterranean, the Cercius moderates the terroirs where Michel Gassier farms his white grape varieties. Cercius Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc (hence the Vin de France designation), which is fermented in concrete tanks and aged for a few month before release.

Not yet reviewed; 2012 vintage rated 93 points by Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): "Starting off the Michel Gassier releases, and a blend of 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Sauvignon that was aged all in concrete, with plenty of lees contact, the 2012 Cercius Blanc delivers a knockout bouquet of peach, tropical, and pit fruits to go with a core of edgy minerality. Containing a full 40% of declassified Nostre Pais, it delivers an absurd amount of quality for a wine that sells at this price. Full-bodied, rich and gorgeously textured, yet also brilliantly pure and precise, it should be purchased by the case load and consumed over the coming 3-5 years. Drink: 2013-2018."
