High aromatic concentration
description_recompenses

The 2019 harvest started on September 2nd and took place until early October.  Thanks to scattered rains over the period, maturities progressed smoothly,
allowing for an ideal picking rythm.  The warm summer provided a concentrated aromatic profile for the white wines. This vintage shows charm and elegance with
remarkable balance.

Grape Varieties: 

Grenache, Roussanne, Clairette and Viognier.

Terroir: 

The selected parcels are from two selected terroir profiles in  Gard and Vaucluse. In the first place, the Grenache and Viognier grapes come from the Gardois area on clay and sand and in the second place the Roussanne and Clairette grapes are harvested on limestone soils in Vaucluse

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 !
