We are coming to the end of a cold and windy winter! The weather was favourable to nature, thanks to the Mistral wind and winter frosts. However, the climate has remained particularly dry this winter. We are therefore impatiently awaiting the early spring rains to recharge the soil’s water reserves for the warm season.
Now the temperatures are rising a little and we see the fruit trees blooming and the buds swelling.
In the vineyards, we are busy pruning the last vines and working the soil to prepare the 2022 vintage.
In the cellar, the bottling of the white and rosé wines of the 2021 vintage is going well, while the red wines are quietly continuing their ageing.
IGP Méditerranée - Viognier Clairette !
Our IGP Vin de Pays Méditerranée cuvée enhances with this 2021 vintage.
In order to return to a specific tradition of the Rhone Valley area, we have decided to make a blend of Viognier and Clairette blanche.
Thus we bring together the best of these two emblematic grape varieties of the Rhone Valley, northern for one, southern for the other.
Our aim here is to bring more complexity and finesse to this wine. The intense aromas and roundness of Viognier are enriched by the structure and freshness of Clairette.
Our IGP Méditerranée remains above all a wine for pleasure, accessible to all tables!
Easter is coming, time to plan your food and wine pairing!
