Les cartes en main
NatureThe pebble terroirs impart strength whilst the clay-limestone and sand soils impart finesse. The Mistral winds offer significant phytosanitary advantages. The climate and soils are well suited to the production of rich and fruity wines.
The hand of manThe climate requires good balance between the varietals in order to retain freshness. The vines are primarily gobelet trained and yields are at 44 hL/ha. Sustainable viticulture, manual harvests and de-stemming.
Character and potentialOrganoleptic profile: exotic and citrus fruits are intertwined with apricot, white peach and a hint of spice and vanilla. Direct and seductive wines with a rich fruitiness.
VisionEdouard Guérin: ‘The harvested crops are pressed immediately and at low temperatures followed by slow fermentations to add further complexity. The malolactic fermentation is not triggered in order to retain freshness.’
ProfilePutting the spotlight on these outstanding terroirs and revealing their potential. These wines combine freshness and remarkable length. An eye-opener!
