Vinification Pneumatic pressing, static cold settling, matured on the lees for 4 months. No Malolactic fermentation. The Roussane is vinified and matured in the barrel before final blending.

Tasting Notes Light yellow gold. Attractive, multifaceted aroma, youthful and moderately full, showing a mélange of quince and fennel complemented by a toasted note. The palate reveals more, notably ripe yellow fruits, spice and herbal highlights. At first open, the wine falls off slightly, then continues to reveal a persistent aromatic conclusion. Well-integrated acidity surfaces at the end together with a mouth-coating texture. - RB
