Villa Moncigale Coteaux D’Aix-En-Provence
We have made our selection from the area around the Sainte Victoire Mountain, a magnificent limestone ridge located west of the city of Aix en Provence and celebrated in Cézanne’s paintings. Around the Sainte Victoire Mountain, the vines are planted at moderate altitudes, which lends lovely freshness to the wine.
The soil is composed of calcareous clay, known for its capacity to regulate the vines’ water supply Limestone pebbles strewn throughout the vineyards also contribute to this by reducing natural evaporation, which is crucial during the summer season. The vines plunge their roots deep down to get all of the nutrients they need, yielding wines that are structured and rich in aromas and flavors. The climate is cool for the region with
considerable diurnal/nocturnal temperature differences, which allow the wines to preserve perfect balance.
The juices are separated and some of them, containing solid matter, undergo cold stabilization at 00°C for 7 days, which brings out aromas and flavors of citrus and exotic fruits. Vinification is conducted in stainless steel tanks and fermentations take place at low temperatures to preserve the freshness of the wines’ aromas and flavors The wines are then aged for 3 months on fine lees and stirred gently once.
A complex and highly aromatic nose featuring delicate notes of red berries, raspberry, white fleshed fruit, peach and white flowers.
On the palate, an impression of freshness and balance dominate with crisp flavors and lovely substance, finishing off on a sensation of minerality and a saline note.
