Ratings & Awards:
The parcels for the Côte d’Azur Sélection grapes are grown on slopes dominantly composed of limestone and sand. The well-drained soil helps to keep the grapes healthy with the downpours that can occur in the region. This combination of rain and land, the maritime proximity, as well as plenty of sunshine allows for the optimal maturity of the grapes.
The grapes arrive early in the day and go directly to pressing for about 2 hours. This is followed by fermenting at a low and controlled temperature of around 60° to 62° F (16°-17° C). After 12 to 15 days of the alcohol fermentation, the wine is then ready for filtering and assembly.
