The harvest 2014 looks qualitative, taking advantage of a well-balanced development of all the vines. The very wet winter allowed to fill up with water supply before a beautiful very dry spring. The blooming took place in optimal conditions, the nouaison was excellent, particularly at the level of grenaches. Degrees remain normal but the strong levels of malic acid assure a good reserve of maturation. The Whites announce of a very good aromatic level, with degrees lower, synonym for freshness and for delicacy

Terroir: 

This Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Roussane, Clairette Blanche, Marsanne, Viognier and Bourboulenc grapes from clayey limestone soils from the north of Vaucluse and Gard. With a Southern French climate renowned for its contrasts; it endures the summer heat and Mistral winds.

Winemaking: 

The harvest is realised early in the morning to preserve primary aromas of the grapes. Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop their own characteristics. Optimized settling to boost aromatic potential, fermentation at very low temperature (12 - 14°C). The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

Pale robe with green hints. Fine and elegant with complex notes of white flowers and fruit (peach and pear). Well-balanced in mouth with fruit aromas at the finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

As an aperitif, with fish in sauce or white meat. Enjoy it cool between 10° to 12°C, now or cellar for up to 3 years.

Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent has been considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. Given that “Vincent” means “triumphant” in Latin, the choice of this name for our cuvée needs no further explanation !
