An authentic Provençal rosé that encapsulates purity, finesse and elegance.
After a brief stint as a chemistry student, Valérie soon realised that the nearby oenology campus looked much more appealing. A combination of her fondest childhood memories of making wine with her grandfather in Ossun, South West France, and the fact that the oenology students were having much more fun than the chemists led Valérie to a career as a winemaker. After a stint at Viña Los Vascos followed by Opus One, she landed a job as head winemaker for Château Fontainebleau. Today Valérie makes pure, elegant wines under her own label in the IGP VAR and AOP Côtes de Provence appellations. The soils are a mixture of clay and limestone and are rich in iron, which gives real structure to the wines. She chooses to vinify in clay amphora as this allows her to preserve the natural expression of the grape with minimal intervention. Her approach is to show the most authentic expression of the grape and terroir rather than the person behind the wine.
