Harvesting in the vineyard began on the 28th of August. Good weather conditions during the year provided excellent growing conditions. The vines, were very healthy and produced a great balance between phenolic and alcoholic maturity, with good acidity. The first juices of our Côtes de Provence are crisp with fresh fruits and have very beautiful colours.

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 in the cool morning hours 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.

 

Tasting notes: 

Delicate « powder pink » colour. Very expressive nose of redcurrant and pink grapefruit. Full-flavoured yet, brisk and fresh with mineral notes on the finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Serve at 10 - 12°C
Food pairing suggestions : on its own for as an apéritif and for summer lunchs, salads, grilled meats or fish, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean or Asian cuisine

 

L'histoire de Gabriel Meffre est intimement liée aux vins de Provence puisqu'il était propriétaire d'un Château en Côtes de Provence dès 1969. Par la suite, la Maison a toujours élaboré et commercialisé un Côtes de Provence rosé, en complément des vins majoritairement rouges de la Vallée du Rhône.
