The 2018 vintage was atypical in many ways. This vintage required a constant presence, from the vineyards to the cellar. After a mild Winter, a wet and rainy Spring gave way to a beautiful Summer, favoring a steady ripening of the grapes. September ushered in an Indian Summer that proved to be more than ideal for the harvest, with cool nights and warm & sunny days. The harvest lasted for a total of 8 weeks, under ideal climatic conditions. The result is an elegant vintage with a particularly aromatic profile and a superbe balance.

Grape Varieties: 

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.

Terroir: 

The grapes have been planted on clay limestone soils in the Vaucluse, the Drôme and the Gard regions.

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 of the lees to boost aromatic potential, fermentation at low temperature (13 - 15°C). Ageing in vats lasts around 6 months before bottling.
Vegan Friendly.

Tasting notes: 

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.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

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.
