We grow our vines with respect for our environment, cultivating sustainable agriculture. The 2020 season was extreme again in the Provence. End of March we have had a severe frost in the vines for two nights. This caused a loss of about 25% of the 2020 harvest volume. Luckily the rest of the season went well, and the vines could recover and produce some really good fruits. The summer was dry and hot as usual with only 6mm of rain in 12 weeks. Due to these climate effects, we had a very early harvest which started on the 28th of August. Happily, the grapes could grow on their best potential with very good maturity, which makes 2020 an excellent vintage.
The grapes are harvested by night at optimum cool temperature and maturity. Direct low-pressure press process is used to produce a lovely clear and fruity rosé. This rosé is fermented at low and controlled temperature in order to allow the production of esther flavour by the selected yeasts. Natural clarification with only one filtration at the bottling in order to preserve and respect the varietal and natural flavours of the grapes.
