Big Coq, AOC Ventoux, Blanc, 2018


The wine
Big Coq is a real product of France, home-made in Vaucluse by artisan vignerons. It echoes with la Douce France, strutting under string lights at guinguette dance halls, nibbling at saucisson during a match, setting the world to rights on a terrace, picnicking on the beach and flirting with the towel next door. Big Coq is proud of its tricolour roots where winemaking know-how, a love of our country and the abundance of our wine-growing heritage shine through.
Big Coq was born in the sunshine of a warm and dry Mediterranean climate, protected from the mistral wind by the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains. These climate conditions make it easier to conspire with nature in the winemaking process.
