Rimauresq estate vineyard comprise 57 hectares of vines. Its exceptional ''terroir'', recognised through its Cru Classé status, results in wines of elegance and complexity with long term cellaring potential. The micro climate at Rimauresq is unique within the Appellation. The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 140 to 190 metres and are aided by a North-West orientation. The vineyards are lucky enough to get the benefit not only of the cooling Mistral winds but also the shade of the mountains above. It is this shade which gives a longer ripening period in the crucial weeks prior to harvest. The terroir itself is of crystalline rock with sand and gravelly soil. It is this diversity that allows Rimauresq to excel in all three colours red, white and rosé. Nine noble grape varieties are found at Rimauresq: Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan for the reds, Rolle (Vermentino) and Ugni Blanc for the whites and Cinsault, Mourvedre and Tibouren for the rosés. At Rimauresq we keep only the best fruit from the vineyards. This dedicated approach, combined with a modern gravity fed winery, allows Pierre Duffort and his team to focus on producing the very best Provence has to offer. Read less
