  • Location

    The geographical zone extends from limestone-rich Lower Provence in the west and north to the crystalline soil formations in the south and the east (the Maures and Esterel mountains). Vineyards are a common feature of the landscape throughout this zone. They run alongside the beaches of the Mediterranean coast, meander through valleys, stretch across the sun-beaten rocky ground, stopping at the edge of the scented pine forests. Our selection was made in the area around the Montagne Sainte Victoire, a magnificent limestone mountain ridge located east of the town of Aix-en-Provence and celebrated in the paintings of Cézanne. The vines cover the slopes of the Arc valley and are influenced by a continental climate, protected to the south from maritime effects by the Aurélien mountains and the Sainte Baume massif. The stony, well-drained soil that has formed around this massif in addition to a cooler climate yield livelier, better-structured wines with exceptional balance.

  • Nose

    Brilliant, rose-petal pink in color with purple nuances. The nose is delicate with scents of red berries, citrus and spicy white blossoms.

  • Palate

    Soft and delectable on the palate with floral notes and flavors of white fruit. Boasts remarkable balance and a fresh finish.
