This Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Clairette Blanche, Viognier and Bourboulenc grapes from clay limestone soils from the North of the Vaucluse and Gard. With a Southern French climate renowned for its contrasts; it endures the summer heat and Mistral wind.
The harvest is realised early in the morning to preserve primary aromas of the grapes which are then pressed. Optimized settling to boost aromatic potential (between 3 and 6°C) before the fermentation at very low temperature (12 - 14°C). The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.
Pale robe with green hints. Fine and elegant with complex notes of white flowers (jasmine) and apricot. Well-balanced in mouth with fruit aromas at the finish.
Service & food pairing suggestions:
Perfect as an aperitif, with a salmon tartar, pork with curry & garlic, or again with a pear & almond tart. Enjoy it cool between 10°C to 12°C, now or cellar for up to 3 years.
