Tasting Note: A beautiful, golden robe. Complex, highly aromatic nose with hints of hawthorn and almond, floral notes including violet, and flashes of summer fruit (mango, apricot). A delicate hint of woodiness, with light accents of gingerbread and tobacco. Rich and creamy on the palate, with great substance, volume and freshness.
Food Matching: Perfect as an aperitif or served with grilled fish and shellfish.
Grape variety: Grenache blanc, Vermentino, Viognier, Roussanne
Harvest: The grapes are harvested by hand, and each variety is brought separately when the fruit has reached its peak maturity
Vinification: The vinification process is tailored to respect the unique characteristics of each grape variety, and to capture the essence of our terroir. The grapes are destemmed and chilled to 8°C, then lightly pressed to extract only the finest juices. The must is then allowed to settle at a controlled temperature, with the duration of this settling process decided by the aromatic properties we are looking for. The fermentation also takes place at strictly controlled temperatures, lasting for anywhere between 2 weeks and a month depending on the clarity.
Ageing: Half-way through the fermentation, a certain proportion of the must is transferred to in 225- litre oak barrels for 6 months of maturing. The wine is left to mature over fine lees and stirred regularly. After a gentle fining process, the wine is bottled relatively early in order to preserve its fresh, fruity character.
