Vintage 2015 : Organic wine certified by FR-BIO 10.  

 

Heavy rains from winter and April allowed to completely re-charge groundwater until the beginning of May. The Provence Region experienced a warm and dry climate during spring, creating perfect conditions for a good flowering, which went from 17-25th of May. Rains restarted by mid-june, generating water resources for the soils. Summer was warm and dry. Harvests started on August 21th and ended September 16th.

 

Growing

Certified organic since 2005 and following some principles of biodynamics. The vineyards are worked by hand, using natural animal fertilizers and treating the soil with sulphur and copper only from 3 generations. We do not use any chemical weed killers. Buds are trimmed and a green harvest is practice to purposefully limit yields. The whole vineyard is plowed with horses. The area between the rows of vines is grassed over with cereals.

Vinification 

All grapes are harvested by hand, sorted, not de-stemmed and directly loaded into the press without crushing. The grapes are lightly pressed so as to obtain optimum delicacy and fragrance from the very heart of the grapes.

Wines ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, gravity-fed cuves.

The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation

 

Tasting
This delicate wine should be drunk around 14°c. Lovely for the aperitif. It is also a perfect match with poultry, veal, prawn, scallops, fish, smoked salmon, cheese soufflés and Asian cooking.

"Alluring, with a tea note out front, followed by orange zest, peach and white raspberry flavors that meld through the creamy, smoked-tinged finish. A touch weightier than most, with good lenght. Drink now." - JM
