100% Muscat à petits grains
Vines selected from the southerly slopes of the Appellation.
Soils made up of stony limestone, sandstone, sand and marl. The strong Mistral wind in this area plays a part by protecting this fragile grape variety from disease.
Grapes where entirely manually harvested when they were fully ripe. Part of the vintage underwent cold process skin maceration to promote the development of aromas. Fermentation under strictly controlled temperatures (16/18 °C). At 115 g per litre of residual sugar, the fermenting process was voluntarily stopped through fast cooling of the vat to 0 °C and through mutage, by adding alcohol.
