REGIONAL OVERVIEW

History

Greek Phoceans landed in this region 26 centuries ago bringing the Ligurians the art of cultivating vines. The Romans organized trade in olive oil and wine using amphorae, assuring portability of this well- balanced and structured wine thus sealing its reputation.

Soil Mostly limestone, with some very stony sandy marl and sandstone.

The production area is contained in a vast amphitheater of mountains (Sainte Baume, Mont Caume) opening onto the sea. Climate The influence of the sea is felt as it tempers the solar ardor in summer while providing some night time humidity.

– Whites: light, straw yellow color with aromas of lime and broom.

– Rosés: Pale rosehips color. The increased use of the Mourvèdre variety now provides better preservation.

– Reds:  Mourvèdre and Grenache varieties. They are powerful, full-bodied, tannic and often age well. Initially characterized by aromas of red fruits, then to notes of truffles and undergrowth.consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
