Location: The appellation area is situated on the right bank of the Rhone River,
between Orange and Avignon, in the village of Roquemaure, near
Soils : The property is located on a plateau covered with large rounded stones.
Climate : It is a Mediterranean one with particularly hot summers. The Mistral wind
blows away any humidity, ensuring very favourable climatic conditions for
the cultivation of vines.
Harvest : All grapes are hand picked, which enables to select the best grapes. This is
a major point in the quality of our wines.
Winemaking & Ageing : The grapes are pressed in pneumatic presses. The juice is clarified by cold
sedimentation (10 - 12°) and a light fining. Fermentation happens at low
and constant temperature (between 14 and 16°C) and lasts around three
weeks. About a third of the volume is fermented and aged in French oak
barrels. The other part stays in tanks on fine lees. Blend of both parts
happens in Mai following the harvest.
