Provence Tradition Blanc

At the foot of the Mont Sainte Victoire, 15 kms from Aix en Provence, in the commune of Puyloubier, this domaine was bought in 1890, by Aurélien Houchart, a negociant and friend of Cézanne and grand-grand father of Geneviève Quiot. 90-hectare family estate, it has been farmed since Roman times, when it must have been a “Villa”, a patrician home of the period, some distance away from the “Via Aurelia”.

"VINTAGE 2015: The nose is fruity and offers a slight freshness. It reveals notes of crushed vineyard peach and slight hints of Quenette, ripe lemon associated with discreet hints of mandarin as well as a hint of white fruits and a very discreet flinty hint. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, ample, round, slightly suave and offers a slight fat, a beautiful juiciness as well as a beautiful fresh/acid frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of vineyard peach and passion fruits associated with slight touches of mandarin, Quenette, a discreet flinty hint as well as discreet hints of lemon and gourmand/fleshy brugnon. Good length." [+]
