Taste exceptional wines in Provence
OUR MAIN GRAPE VARIETIES:
Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (for red wines)
Sauvignon, Rolle (or Vermentino) and Semillon (white wines)
Picked at phenolic ripeness, the harvest is done by hand and transported in small 10-kilo boxes. The same parcel may be visited more than once to ensure only grapes of optimal ripeness are taken from the vine.
At the cellars, the harvested fruit is destemmed (for the reds), sorted and poured into vats by 150-kilo wagons to preserve the quality of the fruit and avoid crushing caused by pumping.
The vats are small in capacity to separate the various batches and grape varieties produced on the vineyard. Tasting is practised every day during the fermentation and maceration processes to determine how to extract the good compounds from the grapes.
The wines are then aged in barrels. The time taken always factors in the specific qualities of the variety, the addition of wood only ever producing a more complex wine with no additional
Wines produced co-jointly with Stéphane Derenoncourt.
These are complex, racy wines with plenty of freshness and breadth on the palate segueing into a slightly saline minerality.
The qualities we aim for in our wines are harmony, finesse and elegance.
