Why we love this wine

  • Grapes & Terroir

    2018 Blanc: Grapes: 60% Rolle, 20% White Grenache, 20% Clairette. 2018 Rosé: Grapes : 50% black Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 20% Cinsault, 10% Mourvèdre. Terroir : clay and limestone soils facing south/south-east, located at the bottom of Luberon mountain.
  • Viticulture

    Certified organic. Green pruning (disbudding). Early morning harvests to benefit from juice freshness.
  • Winemaking

    Harvest selective sorting. Direct pressing with pneumatic press. Separation of pressed and free-run juices (after tasting). Cold static settling for a minimum of 48 hours. 3 weeks mono varietal fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
  • Tasting

    Blanc: Aroma of fresh flowers, citrus fruits, white peaches and pears. Rosé: a beautiful bouquet composed of bright, nuanced, subtle scents, for a complex nose: slight citrus notes, small red berries, freshness of strawberry and finesse of rose and lychee.
  • Wine & Food Pairing

    Blanc: A light fresh summer wine. Perfect for dishes such as grilled or pickled fish, sun-kissed vegetables or a nice plate of fresh goat’s cheese. Rosé: A generous and gourmet rosé made to be shared with friends. Great on its own or with delicatessen, grilled beef, salmon carpaccio, octopus salad and veal tajine.
