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

Grape Varieties: 

Grenache, Roussanne, Clairette and Viognier.

Winemaking: 

The harvest took place early in the morning to preserve primary aromas of the grapes. Optimized settling of the lees to boost aromatic potential (between 3 and 6°C) before fermentation at low temperature (12 - 14°C). The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.
Vegan Friendly.

Tasting notes: 

Pale robe with green hints. Fine and elegant with complex aromas of white flowers (jasmine) and apricot. Well-balanced on the palate with yellow stone fruit notes on the finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Delicious as an aperitif, or paired with red mullet with "tapenade", sausage rougail or even with "fish & chips". Enjoy it cool between 10°C to 12°C.

Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent has been considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. Given that “Vincent” means “triumphant” in Latin, the choice of this name for our cuvée needs no further explanation !
