After a mild and dry winter, a spring without frost and a particularly hot summer, harvesting began several days later than 2015, with picking taking place between early to late September. During the harvest, weather conditions were truly exceptional, with warm clear days, fresh nights and some occasional light rainfall, stretching from early September all the way until the end of October. The sanitary state of the grapes throughout the region was excellent. So, this year again, the 2016 vintage is very qualitative particularly for southern appellations.

Grape Varieties: 

This organic Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Viognier and Clairette grapes from clay limestone soils in the Vaucluse. The grapes have been planted and cultivated according to organic agriculture standards and have been certified by Ecocert, an international organic certification agency.

Winemaking: 

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

Tasting notes: 

Attractive robe with a bright pale yellow colour. The nose is intense with white flower and fruity aromas. The palate is round and generous with flavours of white fruits (peach). The finish is long and elegant.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

As an aperitif, with fish in sauce, such as salmon with dill, or white meat dishes. Serve cool between 10°C to 12°C and enjoy now and over the next 3 years.

The name of this organic cuvée refets to Saint François d’Assise, saint patron of ecologists and nature’s friends.
