Resting amongst the rolling hills on the outskirts of the sleepy town of Cotignac in the IGP VAR and AOP Côtes de Provence appellations lay 15 hectares of single-vineyard plots of Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle (Vermentino) and Syrah from 40+-year-old vines in their final year of biodynamic conversion. The soils are a mixture of clay and limestone and are rich in iron, which gives real structure to the wines. While the clay and limestone impart minerality, freshness and texture. According to Valerie, “Working biodynamically allows for the purest expression of the terroir.” Her wines are elegant, light, pure and utterly delicious to drink. They capture the scents and feelings of Provence in every sip and make ideal summer drinking.
