Product Description

CLARENDON WHITE 2013 VINTAGE COTES DE PROVENCE AOC

The crushed destemmed grapes were pressed directly, without maceration.

Delicate pressing extracted the fruit, the full-bodied structure. Once freed of its deposits, the must fermented in a metal vat a maximum temperature of 16°C for 4 weeks. Bottled in spring 2014.

“Clarendon” was the pseudonym of Bernard Gavoty, a famous French music critic writing in the Figaro newspaper.

“This outstanding property produces one of the best white wines made in province,… made from little-known grapes such as Rolle,… has excellent flavor depth and is fresh ,lively and altogether a joy to drink.” R.PARKER (Wine Buyer’s Guide 1989-1990). “The blanc has an attractive lemony, floral bouquet, well proportioned, fleshy flavors, excellent freshness and acidity, and seems like the perfect foil for grilled seafood and fowl”. R.PARKER (Wine Advocate).

  • Climatic conditions: rainy spring until July 10th then very dry summer until end of August. Very healthy crop. Light rain early September before crop.
  • Tasting: The Rolle conserves a fine pale colour with green tints. Its fruity nose (pear and pineapple) is set off by white flower notes and a touch of honey. The finish is lively and has potential to some rounding, on a still timid structure. Prospects for aging over 10 years.
  • Food matches: its lively character means that initially it goes well with grilled fish; but its soft fullness and volume also make it a perfect match for monkfish stew with citrus fruits. Subsequently it can accompany fish in sauces or poultry in cream sauce when its liveliness has died down giving way to a more creamy texture and more complex aromas ( e.g. : vintages from 1995 – 1998 – 2001 – 2002 – 2007 – 2008).
