The Luberon viticultural area is situated between the Ventoux and Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence appellations, to the north and south respectively. The Luberon vineyards are located within 60km (37 miles) of the Mediterranean coast, and enjoy the benefits of the gentle, south-facing slopes that run from the Mont Ventoux foothills to the sea. Syrah and Grenache dominate plantings and must both be present in the reds. Mourvedre is also considered a primary red grape. Whites are made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino and occasional inclusions of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. Stipulations for white wine production here state that Ugni Blanc must not make up more than 50 percent of the wine and Viognier no more than 10 percent (the latter is also limited to 10 percent in rosé production). The climate is Mediterranean with typically long, warm days, characteristic of the wider region. The Luberon has cooler nights than most Rhône wine-producing areas, however, and this higher diurnal temperature variation helps to produce some of the crisper, more interesting white wines of the southern Rhône.

Tasting note: Deep; rich crimson colour with purple hues. Sweet nose of raspberries; blackberries and a delicate tropical fleck; with dusty overtones. In the mouth it is intense but fresh with crunchy bramble fruit and mouthwatering acidity. Gentle heat and powdery tannis add a liveliness to the palate. Unashamedly Southern French.
Winemaking Detail: In accordance with their Bee Friendly commitment, they do not use any herbicides, the soils are grassed or flowered, to encourage pollination. All the treatments used on the vines comply with the Bee Freindly standard and thus preserve the fauna, flora and the aquatic environment. During the harvest, a plot selection is made according to the age of the vines, the maturity of the grapes and the concentration. The harvest is hand-picked and machine-harvested, then sorted and destemmed. The grapes are pressed under neutral gas to preserve their freshness and aromatic characters. The juice is cooled to a very low temperature (close to 1 ° C), then stirred by stabling, for 10 to 15 days until the optimum quality is reached. Fermentation takes place for 15 to 20 days between 20 and 25 ° C, followed by maceration for about two weeks. The wines are racked regularly and aged in thermoregulated concrete or stainless steel vats, bottled when the winemaker feels it's ready.
