WINE REGION:

The Côtes de Provence appellation extends over more than 20,000 hectares in 3 French departments: the Var, Bouches du Rhône and an enclave in the Alpes Maritimes, grouping together 84 communes.

The climate is predominantly Mediterranean (sunny, hot and dry), but may vary a great deal depending on the topography and influence of the sea. The vineyards also benefit from the Mistral wind, which cleans the air and eliminate parasites.

The "terroir" (site-specific soils and climatic conditions) of the Côtes de Provence appellation is formed by complex geological features. Two major geological formations coexist limestone in the Northwest and crystalline in the Southeast.

The entire northwest portion of the Côtes de Provence vineyards is comprised of alternating hills and rocky limestone hogbacks that have been sculpted by erosion. Further east, along the sea, the Maures and Estérel crystalline rock masses emerge, which were partially formed by volcanic eruptions.

FOOD PAIRING:

Delicate foods such as Salmon Carpaccio or grilled seafood.
