Pale pink in colour with violet lights and a delightful range of aromas from violets to wood strawberries, with a touch of peach. The palate is light and fruity - perfect when chilled and ideal with salads, tabbouleh, marinated courgettes & peppers, and surprisingly delcious with fruit soups made from strawberries or peaches.
Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vat, followed by 3 months maturation in vat prior to bottling.
The estate was purchased by Stéphane Vedeau in 2008, and combines 44ha of mature vines, planted with typical Southern Rhône varieties. It is spectacularly set on a 410m high plateau opposite Mont Ventoux to the south east of the town of Valréas, an hour or so north of Avignon. The winery, cut into the hillside, is state-of-the-art and gravity fed, providing the perfect environment for fine wine production, but it's the combination of Northern Rhône altitude and Southern Rhône grape varieties that makes this place unique.
