Description

From a majority old Clairette vines (planted in 1954) with Vermentino (Rolle). Manual harvest. Strict sorting at the winery. Grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold-macerated on the skins before being pneumatically pressed. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place in temperature-controlled (18-23°C) tanks. Malolactic fermentation is blocked. Matured in concrete vats. Bottling in February/March after the harvest.

Tasting note

Color is clear and limpid. Fine bouquet with a floral and mineral character with notes of white peach and lemon. Lively and candid on the palate, a precise wine, influenced by the limestone and flint, delightfully fresh.

About the producer

The flamboyant and eccentric Raimond de Villeneuve has propelled this 25 hectares estate to the very top echelon of Provençal wine domaines. Benefiting from an altitude of up to 390m and old vines averaging more than 35 years, with many well over 40 years of age, Raimond produces very fresh and precise wines with a real sense of personality and unique style. The terrain includes hillsides and plateaus, forming part of the Massif Sainte Baume, which rises up to over 1,000m. The proximity to the sea ensures a fine microclimate, protecting the vines from hail and excessive humidity. A follower of biodynamic methods for many years, he captures all the sun and scents of Provence, whilst still managing to achieve elegance and subtlety
