Winemaking notes

Each variety is harvested and vinified seperately. The harvest is carried out respecting technical criteria to determine the perfect balance between the PH, total acidity and the phenolic maturity in the must. Destemmed and cooled before pneumatic pressing at low pressure. The first juices are selected and racked at 15° C. The alcoholic fermentation is regulated at 17° in stainless steel vats.

Tasting notes

A most delicate rosé with a striking pale and transparent appearance. An expressive bouquet that exudes Provence, with aromas of spicy citrus fruit, strawberry, apricot and white peaches. Light, fine, smooth and silky.

A delicious combination of dried strawberry with lemon rind character. Medium body, fine bubbles and a fresh finish.

Pretty floral, peaches-and-cream aromas which lead to red currants and spicy red berries on the palate. It’s vibrant and fresh, with a touch of herbs to finish.
