WINEMAKING

Each grape varietal is fermented separately and blended at the end of November then bottled in January

Located on the north face of the Trevaresse Mountain in front of the Durance River, the vines benefit from the Mistral winds coming from the Rhône valley and a cool climate that follows the river. Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon vines thrive in the warm Mediterranean climate and produce a perfectly crafted rosé wine. Clay imparts power and aromatics to the wine, while the chalky limestone rounds it out, bringing fruit notes and a nice minerality.
