Location : CÔTES DE PROVENCE is the most widely known appellation of Provence. Its geographic area comprises 84 towns of the Var, Bouches-du-Rhône and Alpes-Maritimes (1 town) departments. Presenting a certain diversity of soils, the entire area is subject to the Provencal mediterranean climate. The wine benefits from a microclimate with a lot of sunny, dry and windy days.
Size of the vineyard / Total Production (in cases) :
Terroir : The limestone soil, limited in clay, contains numerous fragments of highly porous tuff, allowing the surface to heat up quickly following the first rays of sunlight. The grapes ripen to a good level with an optimum balance of sugar and acidity.
Age of the vines :
Grape varieties : 50% Grenache - 30% Grenache - 20% Cinsault
Vinification : The vinification of rosés is a mix of both traditional and modern techniques: stripping, pressing and cool-steeping of the grapes, followed by bleeding the must that is fermented under controlled temperatures of 18°-20° in order to extract the maximum aroma.
