This cuvée is a blend of grape varieties coming mainly from plots located on the terraces of the river Aygues. Formed of pebbles, clay and fine sands, this terroir will bring finesse and balance to the wine. Only the Viognier parcel is located on the heights of the village of Cairanne, belonging to the Miocene hills terroir, which favours freshness and complexity in the wines.
The grapes are harvested by hand, in small containers, and then pressed directly. Fermentation takes place under temperature control. Malolactic fermentation is not done.
This wine has a wide range of aromas and flavours. The first nose of white flowers is followed by aromas of fresh apricot and pear. The palate is very fresh, fruity and acidulous.
To enjoyed chilled (12 °C) with vol-au-vent or Provencal-style cod.
40% Clairette, 20% Roussane,
20% Grenache blanc, 15% Viognier, 5% Bourboulenc.
