Detailed information


A year with no water stress. All grape varieties developed harmoniously, promitting complex, fresh and aromatic wines. The strong Mistral wind that blew during the last week of August removed the risk of sanitary issues. Harvest started in the best conditions on 1st Sept. 2014.

Grape varieties

56% Viognier, 22% Roussanne, 18% Grenache, 4% Clairette


Plots selected in the Vaucluse and in the Gard for the complementary nature of their terroirs: stony alluvial terraces and pebbly clay soils (alt. 100/150 m – facing south/southwest and east/west), resulting in a fine balance between fruity and fresh aromatic notes.


Grenache and Clairette are pressed immediately. The Viognier undergoes skin maceration in the press. Cold static raking of must. Fermentation process begins in vats. Viognier and Clairette are vinified and matured in 275-litre Laurus oak barrels for 6 months with regular stirring of lees during the first 4 months. No malolactic fermentation.
