Wine experts say this White wine is barrel fermented, then aged in oak for more than a year. The impression is of real acidity, as one might expect with pressed grapes. Aged in large oak casks, this shows dried herb, graphite and cigar box aromas. The palate is fairly smooth, with elegant blackberry, raspberry and spice flavors. Quite interesting, and will be fun to drink with many different kinds of fare. This is a ripe, fruity wine. It has a lively character that brings out tannins and a dry core. The wine is developing quickly and will be ready to drink from 2016. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, this is light, fruity and immediately drinkable. It has a strongly mineral texture that comes from the chalk soil of the Sainte-Victoire in the north of the Provence vineyards.
