Luberon became an appellation d'origine contrôlée in 1988. Since then, great improvements have been made in the quality of its wines through rigorous vinyard selection, stringent varietal requirements and lower yields.
Vinyards are located on both southern and northern exposures of calcareous mountains called the "Luberon". The climate, cooler than that of the Rhône Valley, explains the importance of white wine production in this region (25%).
Peter Mayle's best selling book A Year in Provence has contributed to the popularity of this beautiful region. As a result, Luberon wines are becoming increasingly sought-after. Its white wines are well-rounded, with a clean, crisp finish.
The grapes are sorted and destemmed. Traditional fermentation with a long vatting time (up to 3 weeks) to concentrate the color and the aromas. Ageing in vats for six months before bottling.
Pleasant and expressive with red fruit aromas of redcurrants and strawberries.
Fruity, elegant, round in mouth with a spicy finish.
