The attraction of this region as it has two virtues for the production of great white wines: the altitude which preserves the level of grape’s acidity and the right to cultivate a grape variety which is very aromatic: the Rolle, a variety that is forbidden in the other parts of the Rhone Valley.
Here the Rolle is combined with white Grenache for a good structure. The wine making process is aimed at the preservation of the natural fruitiness of the grapes: a direct wine pressing and racking at less than 10°C. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited in order to keep a correct acidity.
This wine is a continuous invitation to insouciance. Its airy yellow color, its vivid fragrances which switch from white peach to grapefruit, iris and jasmine, and its lightness on the palate contribute to a complete happiness of drinking. It’s a perfect wine for the aperitif, but it will be fine with fish from the river or, why not, with a tart with fresh goat cheese.
Serve at 10°C. This wine can be kept for three years, but we would give you the following advice: don’t keep it, drink it !
