Provence Red 2018

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”.
