The year 2021 was ponctated with many climatic events: frost, rain - too many or not enough - and lack of sun... An animated vintage to sum up, but which has given us some pleasant surprises with better volumes than expected, beautiful balance and lower abv. Whites and rosés, picked early, offer a lively freshness and loads of aromas.

Grape Varieties: 

Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah.

Terroir: 

Vines grow on both sides of the Rhone river, on calcareous and clay soils. The climate is characterized by rather mild winters and hot & dry summers. The "Mistral" wind blows on the vines, especially during autumn and spring, protecting vineyards from diseases.

Winemaking: 

Grapes are vinified separately; direct press and cold settling (5-8°C). Alcoolic fermentation at low temperature (10-12°C) to obtain the "best of the fruit".  No malolactic fermentation. Blend of the grape varieties in December. Early bottling to preserve freshness and fruit aromas.
Vegan wine.

Tasting notes: 

A very delicate hue with a "rose petal" hints. Generous aromas of pink grapefruit and redcurrant jelly on the nose. Lively mouthfeel bringing finesse and freshness on the finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Perfect from aperitif to dessert, with seafood products such as stuffed squid, Provençal mussels, bouillabaisse or even a seafood salad. Serve cool (12°C).

Born on the 3rd Century in Spain, Saint Vincent is the patron saint of all winegrowers. "Vincent" also means "the one who triumphs" in Latin.
