Grape variety

Grenache - Vermentino - Roussanne

Origin

The grapes comes from vineyards that overlook the Mediterranean Sea. The soils, mainly calcareous, are composed of sand, gravel, molasse and white marls and are not overly productive, limiting vine growth and promoting ripening of the grapes.

Vinification

The two varieties are vinified separately in stainless steel vats. The grapes are destemmed and slightly pressed. The juice is fermented at a controlled temperature of 18°C.
40% in oak barrels (20 % new barrels) and 60% in stainless steel vats.

Ageing

After blending, the wine is aged for 3 months on fine lees.

Tasting notes

This wine is fresh and round with nice intense aromas of lemon zest, orange peel and menthol vervain. Lovely freshness.

Wine and Food

Enjoy as an aperitif or with a meal alongside shellfish, oysters, red mullet with tapenade, sole with butter sauce, or even a mandarin pie.

Serving suggestions

Serve between 8 and 10°C.
