La Ferme Julien Luberon Blanc 2011


The story
If you enjoy quaffable wines, this one is ideal for an aperitif or paired with simple cuisine.
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.
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.

Old alluviums mixed with flat and rounded stones, and bits of chalk marl and clay.
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.
