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, Roussanne, Clairette and Viognier.

Terroir: 

The selected parcels are from two terroir profiles:
- The Grenache and Viognier come from the eastern Gard area, on clay and sand soils.
- The Roussanne and Clairette are harvested on limestone soils in the Vaucluse county.

Winemaking: 

The harvest took place early in the morning to preserve the primary fruit aromas. All the grapes were pressed together.
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 lasted for 6 months before bottling.
Vegan Friendly.

Tasting notes: 

Beautiful colour with bright hints. Elegant and fresh on the palate with notes of white flowers & tree fruits (pear, peach). Long and flavourful finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Delicious as an aperitif or paired with cod fillet in foil, ravioli with ricotta cheese, or grilled white meat such as chicken or pork.
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!
