Provence & South East France
Case consists of:
2 x Alpilles Blanc: A blend of Bourboulenc, Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Maccabeu, Roussanne, Vermentino and Viognier grapes, this fresh, delicate and aromatic white wine, dominated by floral and citrus and supported by white fruit, light honeyed and mineral flavours.
2 x Alpilles Rouge: Bold, spicy, berry flavours and silky tannins of Grenache and Syrah, the herbal hints of Mourvedre. plus earthy undertones of Marselan and Petit Verdot and the grippier, more structural currant and liquorice notes of Cabernet Sauvignon.
1 x Cuvée des Filles: A white wine made from the unusual Chasan grape – a hybrid of Viognier and Chardonnay – blending crisp mineral notes of the wine’s limestone terroir with fuller fruit of white peach and apricot and given earthier depth by a week of skin contact maceration prior to fermentation. Delicious and truly unique.
1 x Vallon des Anges: A herbal, peppery and powerful red wine with a little blackcurrant ‘grip’ softened by restrained use of oak to develop cedar depths. It’s a blend of low-yielding Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, fermented in wooden tanks before maturing in a combination of large wooden and concrete vats to gain roundness without excessive oaky flavours (wooden vats) and preserving fruit freshness (concrete vats).
Another Rise & Vine rarity, these are wines that Guy knows from his days when he lived near St-Rémy-de-Provence. The biodynamic/organic vineyard of Domaine de Valdition sits just to the north of the talismanic Alpilles hills made famous in the paintings of Van Gogh during his stay in the St-Rémy asylum.
We import them directly from the domain.
