"Pale orange. Ripe citrus fruits, red berries and an herbal nuance on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Supple and open-knit, showing good heft and a refreshingly bitter quinine note on the warm, clinging finish." (VM)

Winery Notes:
The wine:
A round rosé wine, with a fresh and aromatic bouquet, a silky and fruity mouth with a supple, frank and clear finale.

La Croix Valmer, St Tropez peninsula, next to the seaside.

Sandy-schistous grounds, not very deep, hillside zone.

In the vineyard:
Grapes were harvested by machine during the night and immediately selected, destalked, and put in a tank via gravity to preserve their freshness. Integrated agriculture.

Cooling of the vintage, settling of the juice, fermentation in stainless steel with thermo-regulation at a low temperature. Aging on the lees.
