  • Vineyard Cuvee des 3 Messes (3 Low Masses) owes its name to a short story by the Provençal author Alphonse Daudet. It derives from grapes harvested on the whole area of production of the winery: on the southern slopes of the Mont Ventoux mountain. The altitude of the vineyards ranges from 200 to 580 metres.
  • Vinification The grapes are carefully sorted out for a perfectly sound sanitary state and completely de-stemmed. Pneumatic press. Cold settling of the must and long fermentation of the clear juice at a temperature of 18/19 °C during approximately 3 weeks. The malolactic fermentation is inhibited to retain a bright acidity and freshness. Final blending before the bottling after a few months of maturing in vats.
  • Viticulture The grapes are harvested from 5 villages: Bedoin, Saint Pierre de Vassol, Flassan, Crillon-le-Brave, and Modène.
