Passe Colline, AOC Ventoux, Blanc, 2020

‘Tasty wines for tasty moments’, that’s what the Rhonéa signature range stands for.

Story

The wine
As in cooking, we carefully select terroirs and grape varieties to best express the original flavours of each appellation in a fruity, expressive style with silky tannins. Each cuvée is enjoyable from the moment it is bottled. The final blending is carried out with Chefs Disciples d'Escoffier, so that each wine is associated with the world of gastronomy from the start.
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 grapes are cooled to retain their colour and fresh fruit aromas. They undergo a short maceration before pressing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.
Ageing
The wine is aged in vat for a short while before bottling.

Food and wine pairings
It will go wonderfully with a salad of endives, walnut shavings and blue cheese with a few pieces of pear. But also a fish with a melt-in-the-mouth texture, such as a back of cod en papillote, decorated with candied lemon and turnips golden ball. Finally, why not imagine a Moroccan cucumber salad with orange blossom and maple syrup.
