OUR CÔTES DE PROVENCE
It stretches between the Alps and the Mediterranean. It crosses the departments of Bouches du Rhône, Var, and part of the Maritime Alps, in the PACA region.
A unique landscape between mountain and sea, punctuated by exceptional sites such as the Sainte-Victoire Mountain, the Sainte-Baume Massif, the Maures and the Esterel Massif.
Two major geological domains coexist limestone on the west side and north of the vineyard and crystalline on the east side, facing the sea. Typical soils of Mediterranean climate, garrigue on calcareous soil and maquis on crystalline soil, allowed the import of wine culture in an ideal environment a few thousand years ago. Provence is therefore the oldest of French vineyards and rosé wine, the oldest of known wines!
Three appellations for a beautiful region: Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Coteaux Varois en Provence.
Eight production basins make up the Côte de Provence appellation: the Bordure Maritime, Notre-Dame des Anges, the Haut Pays, the Bassin du Beausset, the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, Fréjus, La Londe and Pierrefeu.
Six appellations are recognized worldwide: Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire, Côtes de Provence Fréjus, Côtes de Provence La Londe, Côtes de Provence Pierrefeu and Côtes de Provence Notre-Dame des Anges.
Blending is an old winemaking tradition. Provence is home to many grape varieties which allow the development of excellent Côtes de Provence, acclaimed by the French.
Grenache from Spain, the main grape variety in the Rhône valley, gives roundness, fullness, alcoholic clout, notes of red fruit, peach, apricot and spices.
Cinsault offers a lightness which makes it disdain in red and acclaim in rosé. Its slenderness and the finesse of its aromas work wonders. In PGI, it is often vinified alone.
Syrah offers structure, aromas of red or black fruit and spices.
The Mourvèdre, which likes really hot lands, gives particularly structured wines, with aromas of ripe fruit, violet and spices.
Carignan succeeds on hills with low yields and structures rosé wines.
La Roussane or Rosé du Var produces fresh and tart wines with an often expressive nose.
The Barbaroux rosé gives a yellow wine with amber nuances, aromatic and not very acid.
As for the color palette of rosés, the main six are peach, melon, mango, grapefruit, mandarin and currant.
