Grenache and Roussanne grapes come from the "Garrigues", this windy and sunny plateau with limestone soils situated at the South of the village near the "Plan de Dieu" area. Marsanne and Bourboulenc grapes are grown on clay soils from the "Coteaux", or hillside, area around the village.
The harvest takes place early in the morning while the grapes are still cool, to preserve the fresh, primary aromas. Each grape variety is vinified separately. A cold-soak lasts 6hrs followed by the pressing and a 24hr settling to separate the clear juice from the rough lees. Fermentation then takes place which is kept at temperatures between 14°C and 17°C for 3 to 4 weeks. Maturing takes place in vats for approx. 6 months before bottling.
Elegant and pale colour with green hints. The nose is rich and opulent and the mouth is particularly round, marked by delicate spicy and floral notes.
