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. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and old Clairette which take root on the hillsides of the Hautes Rives, shape this cuvée.


Hand picked. After a slow barrel fermentation, this cuvée is carefully aged on its lees with stirring for two months.

Tasting notes

With a savoury style, this white Cairanne shows notes of citrus fruits and lime tree, followed by a juicy acidity and a discreet minerality.
