70% Marsanne ; 30% Roussane

Winemaking

Early morning hand harvest to keep the natural freshness of the grapes . Direct pressing and juice clarification by means of flotation. Fermentation process under monitored temperature before the wine is put into barrels for maturing. Ageing on fine lees in new French oak barrels for at least 5 months , stirred regularly with care. 

Food pairings

Tasting

A beautiful pale golden color with green tints, it expresses orange zest and toffee aromas on the nose. In the mouth, pleasant flavours of orange blossoms are accompanied by a wonderful minerality coming from our terroir of Schistes. The lingering finish is fresh, juicy and soft, an elegant balance of structure and intensity with well blended oak.
