With an exceptional location and terroir - right next to Clos Mireille - this Provence producer has everything going for it. Minimal intervention winemaking and real classy fruit makes for a delicate, restrained rosé with style and swagger.

Expert Reviews

93 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitElegant and sleek, this is delicately aromatic on the nose showing apple, white flesh stone fruit and lemon/lime peel aromas, followed by a beautifully focused palate that is finely texture and lingering. It is brightly expressed and mouth-watering to a persistent finish. At its best: now to 2020.

How's it taste?

Wonderfully structured, well-balanced and a delicious wine. Exotic notes with hints of mango and passion fruit. The palate is fresh and luscious with vibrant fruit and crisp acidity. Perfect to enjoy as an aperitif.

How was it made?

Largely Grenache and Cinsault from the Var appellation.

The terroir is a very old ground characterised by a mixture of schist and clay, and by the absence of limestone. It benefits from a micro climate and a daily sea breeze that avoids the cold winters, the risk of frost and helps to temper the summer heat.

Harvested in the cool of night, the berries are destemmed and pressed the same day for the production of rosé wines. The cellar is fully thermo-regulated to ensure precise control and monitoring of alcoholic fermentations.

Who made it?

The story begins in 1980 when François Devictor decided to settle down in Provence and produce great wines. He fell in love at first sight with the Domaine de la Sanglière in Bormes les Mimosas and saw the potential this idyllic site represented. With a total surface of 42 hectares (20 ha under vine), the estate was completely remodeled to meet optimal quality requirements. A cellar was built. The production of Whites, Rosés and Red wines in Côtes de Provence appellation begins! The vineyard site is characterized by its schistose-clayey soil and an absence of limestone. The estate benefits from a microclimate with a daily marine breeze, which avoids the too cold winters and risks of frost and allows more moderate summer heights temperature. Today, the estate is managed by Francois' sons, Remy and Olivier.
