  • Terroir

    Clay and limestone soils facing south / south-east. Located at the bottom of Luberon mountain.

  • Winegrowing

  • Winemaking

    Harvest selective sorting. Destemming with new generation destemmer (Oscillys from Bücher) then crushing. Direct pressing with pneumatic press.

  • Aging

    Stainless steel tanks aging over fine lees until Christmas. Clarification by racking and filtration before bottling.

  • Tasting

    A beautiful garden composed of very different, bright, nuanced, subtle scents, for a very complex nose: slight citrus notes, vivacity of small red berries, freshness of strawberry and finesse of rose and lychee. The intensity of the perfumes is found in the mouth with a frank attack, without concession. The mid-palate offers many variations, fruit explosion sensation with a lot of liveliness and freshness. The finish is long and saline.

  • Wine &
    food pairing

    A generous and gourmet rosé made to be shared with friends. Delicatessen, grilled beef, red mullet fillets, salmon carpaccio, octopus salad, veal tajine... Here, place to the audacity, in any season. Because yes, thanks to its beautiful generosity, you can also pair this rosé on your most winter dishes. One watchword : D.A.R.E. !
