Sandy clay soils with siliceous pebbles from the Miocene seas. Warm, dry Mediterranean climate, tempered by sea winds. Well-preserved Mediterranean garrigue ecosystem.
Vinification and aging
Machine harvesting with onboard sorting, by night to preserve aromatic freshness. Direct pressing. After cold static clarification of the must, alcoholic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks at low temperature (15-18°C), and in French oak barrels.
A pale yellow colour with hints of green. A nose with aromas of fresh fruit (pomelos, exotic fruits) and white flowers (honeysuckle), with slightly toasted notes. The palate is fruity, with strong vanilla notes and an appealing freshness, balanced out by a very round finish.
