Origin

The Côtes de Provence AOC is located in the southeast of France and its reputation is largely based on its rosé wines. The Provence wine region enjoys an exceptional amount of sunshine with hot summers accompanied by the Mistral wind, and its terroir is made up of a complex geology. Each wine is therefore imbued with the personality of its terroir resulting in a wide variety.

Vinification

Once the harvest is brought in, every effort is made to prevent oxydation of the musts as they undergo direct pressing. The wines are vinified at low temperature, depending on the yeast used. Once fermentation is completed, we age the wine on the gross lees or fine lees according to the potential of each vat. Malolactic fermenation is systematically prevented in order to retain as much freshness and tension in the wines as possible.
