Passe Colline, AOC Ventoux, Rosé, 2018

Presentation

The wine
Nicknamed the Giant of Provence, Mont Ventoux is the tallest mountain in the Monts de Vaucluse. This land of dreams and legends has been the setting for incredible stories involving men who one day dared to defy the mountain. The region setting is beautiful, but sometime hostile. The terroir consists of steep slopes, pebbly soil, and a windy, very sunny climate. Every vintage reflects the winegrower’ s passion to produce optimum quality.
Terroir
Passe Colline is made from grapes grown on three different types of soil, which explain its unique personality and suave flavour: hills with light sandy soil, slopes with zaffer, a mix of sandstone and sand sediment, and a terrace of fallen rocks propitious to winegrowing.
Vinification
The Vignerons’ Ventoux wines are made specifically to highlight their fruitiness. When it comes time to pick the grapes, they are always extremely aromatic, with an intoxicating smell. In order to make the most of this superb fruit, the Vignerons use state-of-the-art equipment to ferment the must at a temperature of 15-16°C. This gentle treatment results in naturally balanced and fruity wine, which is aged for a short while in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and bottled early.
