The roundness of white Châteauneuf and the minerality of our Urgonian limestone soils.


Appearance : pale lemon-green 

Nose : the wine expresses some fine and lively aromas of citrus, thyme and verbena, as well as some delicately spiced notes of liquorice and fennel.

Palate : It is deliciously crisp, round and aromatic with a crisp finish.

Advice from the sommelier : Best served at 10°C. To be paired with Summer Brandade Ravioli or Patrick's scrambled eggs with truffles ("brouillade")...

Grape varieties : 50% Roussanne, 20% Grenache blanc, 20% Clairette, 10% Bourboulenc 

Harvest :  Early Harvest (usually before September 15th) to preserve maximum freshness, except for the late ripening Clairette. 100% hand harvest into small baskets with thorough sorting of the grapes.

Terroir : The white vines are mostly on Urgonian limestones located on the Western side of the estate. This provides wines with excellent minerality.

Winemaking : The grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press right after the harvest. After cold settling, around 70% of the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks at 15 to 18°C, the rest in 225 litres barrels. The wine ages for 6 months in new oak barrels and vats. There is no malolactic fermentation and the wine is slightly filtered before bottling.

Potential of ageing : Best to drink now, but can age 2 to 3 years for an evolution towards some more roundness and some waxy and honey aromas.
