Pretty light lychee-pink hue. The nose is expressive and complex with aromas of exotic fruits (litchi and passion fruit), white peach and acacia. The mouth is fruity with notes of white peach and hints of pomegranate. Beautiful length with a persistence of the fruit. A fine and elegant wine in true Provençal tradition.

The 2020 vintage began with a mild and dry winter leading to an early budding. The beginning of spring was marked by three successive white frosts which affected the future harvest. The vines then took full advantage of the generous rains up until a very hot summer arrived. The drought conditions put a lot of stress on the vines putting further pressure future yields. Fortunately, the rains at the start of the harvest allowed the vines to regain their balance and the grapes to reach their full maturity.

Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Rolle.

Fish carpaccio, salads, vegetarian dishes, grilled fish and white meat.

Pungent and zesty up front, the 2019 Côtes de Provence Rose l’Esprit de Provence settles down quickly to deliver ripe melon, stone fruit and citrus notes tinged with just enough red berries. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, it’s medium-bodied and generous on the palate, finishing with lingering citrus and spice.

Robert Parker

Wine Advocate

L’Esprit de Provence features appealing notes of crushed stone, red berries and ripe citrus on the nose. It’s light to medium-bodied but silky in texture, with attractive hints of dried spices on the finish.

Joe Czerwinski

Wine Advocate

Palest pink gold. Excellent floral and red fruit concentration on the nose, with loads of concentration and weight on the palate, finished with a lovely leafy tone. This is excellent – really crams the fruit in without losing freshness, and has alluringly smooth texture. Superb! Comparable to the likes of Esclans – and potentially ageable for the short term too?

Lovely ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit - really generous and delicious with soft acidity but no lack of balance. Dry and glossy with a bit of orange-peel pith giving lovely zip.

A spirit of Provence that translates into a soft pink colour and an elegant and up-front nose, between peach and citrus. The prelude to a flattering mouth, all in roundness, with persistent fruitiness.
