  • 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 meters.
  • Vinification Careful selection of the harvest, which is totally de-stemmed. Each grape variety is vinified apart. Maceration with daily pumping-overs and a few punching-downs of the cap. at controlled temperature (28/30°C). Blending after completion of the malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged several months in cement vats. The final blending is then effected and the wine bottled.
  • Viticulture The grapes are harvested from 5 villages: Bedoin, Saint Pierre de Vassol, Flassan, Crillon-le-Brave, and Modène.
