From Vienne to Lyon, the vineyard of the Côtes du Rhône spreads on 44.000 ha and 6 departments. Our parcel selection Laurus comes from the Gard & Vaucluse departments, in order to ensure a perfect balance between aromatic richness and freshness.
The harvest started early, on the 18th August. The Viognier grapes first underwent a pre-fermentation cold soak on the skins while the remaining varieties were all pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. The Roussanne, Viognier and part of the Marsanne started their fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being transferred to barrels to finish fermenting. 65% of the cuvée was then aged in 275 liter oak Laurus barrels for 7 months with regular stirring of the lees for the first 3 months. To retain fresh acidity, the cuvée did not undergo malolactic fermentation.

"This is rounded and creamy in feel, with pretty melon, yellow apple and salted butter notes. There's a light flash of almond on the finish. A tasty crowd-pleaser." Wine Spectator - Mars 31, 2019
