Description: This historic cuvée of the Estate, produced since the 17th century, is a blend of different soils and varietals situated on the coolest terroirs. The Grenache blanc grapes come from the “La Crau” plateau, while the Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, and Picpoul varietals are grown in the “Vallon de la Solitude”. The Roussanne and Grenache blanc grapes are fermented and aged in barrels on fine lees while the other varietals mature in vats to retain all their freshness.
