    Tasting Notes

     

    The Luberon Regional Natural Park acts as the setting for the Luberon vineyards. These currently are spread over 36 villages, all situated in the south east of the Vaucluse department. Classified as Mediterranean but under the influence of a more continental climate from the Alpes and Rhone Valley. The Luberon is one of the most sun-drenched regions in France with approximately 2,600 hours of sun per year.

    Grape varieties
    Grenache noir, Syrah

    Terroir
    Here, the vines grow in sandy-clay soil at an altitude of 350 meters.

    Harvest
    The harvesting of the ripe grapes is carried out by machine, making sure to respect the integrity of the grape berries.
