Vintage 2022

For the first time, an amphora completes the blend and brings freshness and minerality to this vintage of great aromatic finesse.

Vineyard

Blend of different small plots with clay-limestone soils, around the winery in Rasteau. Lieu-dit “La Ponce”, located at an altitude of 340m.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked and sorted at the vineyard, before sunrise to make the most of cool night-time temperatures. They are fully destemmed. There is gentle pressing and cold settling, then the must goes into stainless tanks for fermentation at a low temperature (16-18°C).

Tasting notes

Pale golden colour. A nose of juicy white and citrus fruits. The palate is fresh, mineral and crisp, followed by flavours of white peach and pear. A moreish and refreshing white wine.

Food pairing

Soft fresh ewe’s cheese with melon and fennel jelly – California Salad – Scallops with lime juice – Shellfish – Peach clafoutis with rosemary.
