Terroir
The entire AOP (PDO) area nestles in the heart of the Luberon Regional Nature Park. Here, the vines grow in sandy-clay soil at an altitude of 350 metres. The surrounding mountains create a nice range of temperatures which helps concentrate the colouring matter in the grapes, while preserving the wine’s “bite”.

Harvest
The harvesting of the ripe grapes is carried out by machine, taking care to respect the integrity of the grape berries.

Vinification
Traditional vinification in concrete tanks. The alcoholic fermentation is temperaturecontrolled to preserve the fresh fruit flavours. Short pumping over every day at regular intervals. The maceration lasts about three weeks.

Maturing
The wine is aged 6 months in concrete vats.

Tasting
Colour: garnet red colour.
Nose: complex and fine with notes of black fruit (blackberry / blackcurrant).
Palate: fruity with lovely notes of liquorice. Silky tannins. Creating a precise and elegant wine with lovely freshness.
Recommended food pairing: sauteed veal.
