After the caprices of the weather in Provence in 2019, a cold spring, rainfall and the drought of the summer, the grapes ripened late but ideally, in an excellent state of health. These conditions announce a quality vintage despite low juice yields, which mixes a beautiful concentration of fruity aromas. A promise that is elegant and harmonious.

Grape Varieties: 

Grenache, Syrah, Rolle

Terroir: 

The vines are located at the base of the Mont Sainte Victoire, East of the city of Aix en Provence. This imposing mountain protects them from the Mistral wind and harsh winter conditions. The vines grow on calcareous & sandstone soils,  on "espaliers" or terraces. They benefit from a Mediterranean climate, tempered by an altitude of 300 meters.

Winemaking: 

Harvested took place early in the morning while the grapes were still fresh. Each grape variety was vinified individually at low temperature to favour lively floral and fruity aromas. Short pre-fermentation soak (appx. 4 hours). Juices were racked off, blended and fermented. Bottled at the beginning of the year to preserve freshness & fruit aromas.
Vegan Friendly.
