Winery Notes:
Renowned for its exceptional value for money (including recently in the famous Wall Street Journal), La Vieille Ferrne Blanc is the archetype of Rhône whites. Fruity, crisp and soft with great body. A wonderful “enjoyment” wine!

Description:
If you enjoy quaffable wines, this is ideal for an aperitif or with simple cuisine.

Situation:
Mainly within the Parc Regional du Luberon, which is equidistant from Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Manosque. The average altitude of the vineyards is 300 metres/1000 feet above sea-level, and the grapes are harvested relatively late.

Terroir:
Old alluvial deposits of round and flat stones, calcareous marl and patches of clay created by alluvial alpine flows.

Process:
The grapes are lightly crushed, then pressed in a pneumatic press, prior to clarification of the must and cool fermentation. This takes place in vats for 90% of the blend, with 10% fermented in new oak barrels with lees-stirring. In stainless steel tanks until the month of January, when the wine is bottled after fining.

Grapes:
Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc

Tasting:
Colour: bright yellow with tints of green. Nose: green fruit, wheat, hazelnuts. Mouth: soft, delicate, aromatic

Service:
14C/50F with a starter or a cold buffet.
