Blend: Muscat of Alexandria and small berried Muscat. Hand-picked. Short maceration on skins followed by fermentation at low temperatures.
The deliciously heady perfume typical of the Muscat grape intermingles with aromas of peach, mango and citrus fruits.

The vineyards of Roussillon are exposed to demanding weather: this is the ultimate Mediterranean climate with its hot summers, its mild autumns and winters and its rainfall concentrated in autumn and spring.
Every other day, the region is buffeted primarily by the Tramontane, a dry northerly wind which promotes outstandingly healthy fruit and reduces the need for plant protection products.
The soils are marked by the uplift of the Pyrenees which has shaped its landform and given rise to myriad vineyard sites with distinctive characteristics. The diversity here is unparalleled.
