• Presentation

› Terroir

Mainly composed of shale and sandstone, this Permian soil is poor and thus the wines must take root deeply to benefit from the full characteristics of the land.

› In the vineyard

To prevent erosion due to highly irregular rainfall, long terraces have been built on the slopes of the Maures Massif where the wines are espalier trained.
Traditional growing methods are given priority and include the ploughing to ventilate the soil and the using of organic rather than chemical manure for regeneration. Besides, treatment is preventive rather than curative so smaller doses are used.

› Varietals

"Light and fresh, this is a crisp and tangy wine. Attractive acidity dominates and gives life to the bright red fruits. A slice of lemon brings a tangy dimension to this juicy, fragrant wine" [+]

"This has a pure feel, with racy-edged bergamot, tea, orange zest and rose water notes, all backed by a bright, stony finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made."
