Our Côtes du Rhône white is a blend of Grenache blanc, Viognier and Clairette grapes, grown according to organic agriculture standards. Enjoy it on any occasion!
This ECOCERT (Organic certification agency) certified Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Clairette grapes, grown according to organic agriculture standards.
The grapes have been planted on clay limestone soils in the Vaucluse, the Drôme and the Gard regions.
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 of the lees to boost aromatic potential, fermentation at low temperature (12 - 14°C). Ageing in vats lasts around 6 months before bottling.
Specific to this 2017 vintage : the high temperatures during the harvest required special attention during the winemaking. Indeed, the challenge of our team was to maintain cool enough temperatures in order to preserve the aromatic potential and the freshness of the wine.
Attractive straw-green hue. Intense nose of white flowers and yellow fruit. The palate is round and generous with flavours of peach and mirabelle. The finish is long, fresh and appetizing.
Delicious as an aperitif, or paired with a vegetarian pie (asparagus, tomato, zucchini...), cod accras or langoustine with saffron. Enjoy it cool, between 10°C to 12°C, over the next 2 to 3 years.
The name of this organic cuvée refets to Saint François d’Assise, saint patron of ecologists and nature’s friends.
