The Sainte Ombeline cuvée comes from a plot of Chardonnay protected by a wall surrounding the Abbey. This protects the grapes from the attack of the surrounding sea salt. This is why this cuvée is produced with 100% indigenous yeasts. It is the perfect expression of the terroir of St Honorat!
The Saint Ombeline 2019 cuvée, with its deep golden yellow colour, is an invitation to taste. The first nose is a pleasure of refinement and delicacy. Citrus fruits and broom flowers mingle with toasted notes of toast and bourbon vanilla. On the palate, the attack is silky and smooth supported by a nice acidity. The racy nectar can unveil all its chiselled aromas. A delicate bouquet of citrus fruits, fresh flowers, minerality enhanced by notes of toasted almonds. Charming and harmonious by its aromatic finesse, the Ombeline cuvée offers with its exceptional persistence the reminiscence of a deep and intense palate.
