Luberon became an appellation d'origine contrôlée in 1988. Since then, great improvements have been made in the quality of its wines through rigorous vineyard selection, stringent varietal requirements and lower yields.
The vineyards are located on both the southern and northern faces of the Luberon mountain range inside Luberon Regional Park. The climate, cooler in Luberon than in the heart of the Rhône Valley, explains partially why white wines represent 25 % of production.
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.
The grapes are sorted and destemmed. Traditional fermentation with a long maceration (up to 3 weeks) to concentrate the color and the aromas. Aging in tank for six months before bottling.
Pleasant and expressive with red fruit aromas of redcurrants and strawberries.
Fruity, elegant and round on the palate with a spicy finish.
