In wine terms, the Die area is included in the Rhône Valley region (though it doesn’t fit into either north or south categories); the town of Die is 50km (30 miles) southeast of Valence and the vineyards follow the Drôme River, a tributary of the Rhône. The vineyards are some of the highest in France (higher than most in Savoie, for example), lying between 400 and 700 meters with a climate that is a cross between semi-continental and semi-Mediterranean.
Notions of red roses and rosewater add flair to the bouquet of lemon, apple, peach and honey along with fresh scents of tangy fruit. There’s good verve to the mousse on the palate, and good length.
Terroir clay-limestone soils and rocky. 10 acres of white Muscat à petits grains, 5ha white Clairette Exhibition. The vines are planted in small plots on the sunny slopes, at the foot of the Vercors Park.
