• Presentation

An aperitif wine or to accompany simple cuisine, a great everyday white wine!
› The vintage

The 2011 vintage is a vintage of contrasts. That is to say an unusually hot, dry spring followed by a wet and rainy beginning of July and then an Indian summer lasting until the end of October. Carefully sorting and destemming the harvest allowed for a great vintage, particularly for the late harvest varieties.

› Description

If you enjoy quaffable wines, this is an ideal one for an aperitif or with a simple cuisine

› Situation

Mainly within the Parc Regional du Luberon, which is equidistant from Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Manosque.
The average altitude of the vineyards is 300 metres/1000 feet above sea-level, and the grapes are harvested relatively late.

› Terroir

Old alluvial deposits of round and flat stones, calcareous marl and patches of clay created by alluvial alpine flows.

› Process

The grapes are lightly crushed, then pressed in a pneumatic press, prior to clarification of the must and cool fermentation.
This takes place in vats for 90% of the blend, with 10% fermented in new oak barrels with lees-stirring.
In stainless steel tanks until the month of January, when the wine is bottled after fining.

› Grapes

Bourboulenc : 30%
Grenache : 30%
Ugni blanc : 30%
Roussanne : 10%
