"This cuvée comes from Roussanne vines which are at least 40 years old. Exposed to the southwest, their yield is just three tons to the acre. The parcel is just over half a hectare (1.5 acres). Two or three passes are made through the vineyards in anticipation of optimum ripeness. The wine undergoes lees stirring during four months. Afterwards, the wine finishes its élevage in tank. The complex nose of this wine combines dried apricot and peach notes with vanilla and spice. A great match with grilled salmon, sea bass, or white sausages."
