Black Grenache, Cinsault, Counoise, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Rolle, White Ugni. Pale candy pink with gold reflection. Clear appearance with very small bubbles suspended. It’s a young wine with a pleasant and intense nose. We smell exotic notes as grapefruit and passion fruit. These notes are increased by swirling and quickly wine will let appear buttery and almond notes. Palate has a frank start although sophisticated. In mouth, first aromas are similar to the nose but quicly change and are close to apricots, mirabelle plum and sweet. Long finish. This complex and harmoneous wine fulfill perfectly its refreshing fonction.
On the Northern side of the Alpilles, in a wild terroir with soils just as white as chalk, the antic Via Aurelia runs alongside the Domaine des Terres Blanches.In 1968 Noël Michelin purchases the estate, which is made of only 25 acres of vineyards. From the start, he chooses farming methods that preserve nature: hand harvest and organic farming.In 2012, the estate is purchased by Christian Latouche who already owns domaine de la Vallongue on the opposite side of the Alpilles. Nowadays Terres Blanches is one if the most renowned wines of Provence, showing on some of the world’s most prestigious chefs’ tables.
