SAINTE VICTOIRE
90 points by Roger Voss from Wine Enthusiast Magazine "This full-bodied wine is one of those rosés that needs some aging. It has ripe, structured red fruits as well as acidity and a touch of tannin. The wine is likely to be ready to drink from late 2019"

 

Terroir
Located in the upper basin of the Arc, the terroir is composed of scree and clay-sandstone from the Late Cretaceous period, with colluvial deposits from the surrounding hills. The etymology of the name "Maupague" (meaning "giving little"), and the geological characteristics of the soil make this property particularly well-suited to the growing of grapes; there have been vines here for many generations.

 

Vineyard
Average age of vines: 20 years Grenache 70% Cinsault 30% Yield: 50 hl/ha. Sustainable farming Vegan wine

 

Vinification
18 days of cold tank stabilisation at 4° C in pre-fermentation phase, then temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats.
