Most of our vines were planted 70 or 80 years ago in the brown sands to the east of the ‘appellation’ area – these soils date back to Miocene era; they formed the sea bed when the lower Rhone valley was covered by the Mediterranean.
Over the years we have bought 3 small parcels of land on this unique terroir in the Valori area. They are planted in an east-west orientation and surrounded by trees. Mature and deep rooted, these vines have a ‘signature’ of finesse and complexity. They give us our ‘’Tour d’Ambre’’ cuvee. The whole harvest is vinified after a careful selection of grapes, then aged in ‘second or third wine’ barrels, so that the full flavour of the grapes is preserved. It is kept in these carefully selected barrels for at least 20 months before being bottled.
