The 2023 vintage

The winter of 2022-2023 was particularly dry in Provence. The arrival of spring did not change the climatic conditions, and the resulting early drought was becoming particularly worrying. This was without counting on a complete turnaround in the situation during May and June. Regular and abundant rainfall profoundly changed the profile of the vintage. In some areas, more than 300 mm of rain was recorded, with several days of thundery showers, sometimes accompanied by hail. In some very localized areas, mildew had a profound effect on the potential of the harvest. Fortunately, from June onwards, a particularly hot and dry summer put a definitive stop to the development of the fungus. Under glorious sunshine, the vines, which benefited from a good water reserve, developed under excellent conditions.

From mid-August onwards, as we strolled through our vineyards, we noticed looser bunches, highly concentrated grapes and thicker skins, perfect indicators of great vintages. The first ripeness checks suggested a harvest with great potential, combining good acidity and moderate sugar levels. However, the end of the summer brought a new surprise, with a fortnight of almost scorching temperatures. The ripeness of the grapes took off. Very quickly, the potential degrees soared, and the colour and aromas appeared.

Harvesting programmes had to be speeded up to preserve and benefit from the good acidity present on 15 August. In the later areas, from the second decade of September onwards, cooler nights facilitated pre-fermentation operations. The harvest took place in record time, with all the grapes in the cellar by early October. The lovely musts, which were already very pleasant to taste, augured well for a vintage of great quality. Fermentations produced beautifully coloured wines (whites, rosés and reds), with very clear aromas and well-balanced acidity on the palate. 2023 was a vintage in which vigilance, adaptation and responsiveness all came into their own. But the winemaker’s hard work has been rewarded by the consistent quality of our still young wines.

Grape varieties

Organic farming. Cereals are sown between the rows to encourage the soil to thrive, the vineyards are carefully selected, and the oldest plots are harvested by hand. Everything is done here to get the best out of our vineyard, which is set in the heart of a vast, unspoilt, wooded area.


Delicate pneumatic pressing, careful separation of the juices, traditional vinification in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures are all operations that precede our blending of the best batches obtained each year.


At the end of fermentation, a light racking in the clear ensures that only the best lees remain, which are then carefully worked to enhance both the aromatic expression and the potential of these aromas to last over time.

Tasting notes

Very pale litchee pink colour. The nose is fine and elegant. Complex, it releases long aromas of white-fleshed fruit, citrus fruit and white flowers. The palate is straightforward and clean: fine and silky, it is at once tender, delicate and lively. The freshness of the finish underpins the measured volume and a touch of salinity harmonises the whole.
