A delicate carmine color with ruby reflections adorns this cuvée. The first nose is delicate. An intense and deep aroma of currant, violet and a hint of tobacco.
On the lips, this fine beverage reveals a delight of fleshy fruits, a gourmet freshness, the silky tannins of a racy and unique Pinot Noir matured under the Mediterranean sun, a tribute to the distant Burgundy hillsides sublimated by the Cistercian monks.

Primeur Vintage 2021
The year 2021 was a demanding vintage around the Mediterranean and for France in many respects. While the winter of 2021 was mild with little precipitation. We had a cold snap when the first vines had already budded.
Many vines in the Var have frozen for the second consecutive year. This led to a certain intra-plot heterogeneity. Spring had some good rains, which helped us but forced us to be very vigilant and to accelerate vegetative growth between sun and rain.
From May 15 until the end of September, the vines never had a drop of rain. Only 40mm in 5 months is very little. No big heat but the vine suffered from the lack of water.
The harvest was early and the choice of harvest dates was complicated by heterogeneity and water stress and localized blockages in maturity. However, with meticulous work in the cellar, we are satisfied with the quality of the vintage, with freshness and a beautiful aromatic complexity.
