This is a glorious 82-hectare property sitting in its own bowl right in the heart of Provence near the pretty town of Lorgues. It has been under the ownership of the dynamic Valérie Rousselle since 1994.
This delicious fine and delicate Côtes de Provence Rosé is made mainly from the local Provençal grape variety Tibouren, together with some Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Mourvèdre. The grapes are harvested at night and taken to their state-of-the-art winery where the fermentation and maturation take place in stainless steel tanks.
The 2020 is magnificent; very classy indeed. A delicious white is made with Ugni Blanc, Sémillon, Rolle and Clairette. It has wonderful. rounded fruit flavours and a long lingering finish. An excellent match with fish dishes. There is so much concentration of flavour here it will also easily complement a chicken or pork dish with a rich sauce. A wine really worth discovering.
