Les Hautes Rives


Bordered by the cliffs of blue marl and fine Miocene sands that overlook the river Aygues, the vines of Les Hautes Rives enjoy a hillside terroir at 200 m high, covered with light marl and pebbles.


Hand picked and vinified with simplicity in stainless steel vats and concrete tanks in order to keep all its original fruitiness and elegance. Fermentation for 14 days with unballasting and pumping over. Ageing in tanks only.
