Côtes de Provence
The Mediterranean climate swept by the Mistral does not create a high phytosanitary pressure, thereby limiting the number treatments needed. Average age of vines is 30 years-old. Yield: 55 hectoliters/hectare on average.
Stony soil with red argilo-sandy matrix
All fruit is destemmed. Direct pressing of the grapes in an oxygen-free atmosphere is followed by fermentation at low temperatures then maturing on fine lees to bring fullness and complexity. Aged 5 months in temp-controlled tanks before being filtered with kieselghur (powdery diatomaceous earth) and bottled in February.
Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania
Bright orange citrus notes and flowers on the nose. More flavor on the palate. Softly textured, fresh, crisp, and mineral.
