Description

Originating from the same terroir as the Blanc, thus ensuring a similar vitality and poise. Clean as a whistle, with subtle summer berry notes, it energises the palate through its telling flinty vigour.

Tasting note

Clear pink bouquet, a finely spiced citrus nose,slightly lemony, floral. The palate is taut, white fruits, citrus, hint of fennel … a rosé for every occasion and any meal.

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
