Very pale rose pink colour and an expressive nose of tropical fruit and white flowers. A vibrant attack leads to a nicely rounded palate and excellent persistence of flavour on the finish.
The vineyards at La Bargemone enjoy the benefits of a classic Provençal terroir: stony clay and limestone soils promote healthy ripening, while a sunny, dry Mediterranean climate swept by the Mistral wind keeps the vines cool and protects them from disease. The high-altitude location means temperatures are lower and the growing season longer than elsewhere: harvests start some 2 weeks later than in other vineyards. The terroir yields well-coloured wines with good flavour concentration.
Pair with tapenade, barbecue, griddled fish, aïoli or tapas.
