Soil: The region is dominated by a rocky peak, and has a warm, dry climate, which is nonetheless modified by the influence of the powerful mistral wind. The combination of these factors permits an environmentally friendly approach to viticulture, with minimum intervention.
Varieties : Grenache white (50%), Viognier (40%), Clairette (10 %)
Vinification : After a light pressing, the grapes undergo a long fermentation of 5-6 weeks, with soft extractions, at a maximum temperature of 25 C. In order to allow the full expression of a Mediterranean terroir which is associated with the rounded stones found in this region, our Côtes du Rhône is matured in traditional concrete vats, out of contact with the air, for at least 8 months. This purist approach allows the tertiary aromas unique to this region to develop fully.
Tasting : Exquisitely made, crisp bright, succulently fruity wine with exotic aromas of tropical fruit and flowers. Bee wax and amazing freshness from mid palate to the finish.
Food pairing: A good accompaniment to white meat dishes with oriental spices, great with fishes in sauce.
Exceptional vintage : smoothness, maturity, volume on the palate, fluidity in a hyper-concentration. La Ferme du Mont have centred on the keeping of it burgundy spirit in the winemaking to restitute in the final the airy touch needed by this historic vintage to delight the connoisseurs.
