/ Warm pear and jasmine scents carry the alcohol of this wine, to chill for veal sausages.

The vineyard covers a single area of 140 acres, around 123 acres of which are currently in production. Some plots have just been replanted and are still too young to produce appellation wines, and 10 acres)of old vines have been removed. These will be replanted after five to six years lying fallow. This is necessary to eliminate viruses, as we do not use chemical disinfection. The vineyards are cultivated organically under "Qualité France" supervision. No insecticides or herbicides are used. Copper and sulphur contents are limited. The soil is worked by tilling and enriched by applying manure of organic origin. The main grape varieties are Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault for the reds and rosés, and Semillon, Clairette, Rolle, and Roussanne for the whites. All harvesting is done by hand. Read less

/ Wonderful blend. It is round, full bodied, and both spicy and fruity in character, tasting of pear, honeysuckle, pineapple, and mango. Medium long finish. Delicious.

La Stele - 88 Points, Wine Spectator/ Ripe tropical fruit flavors are supported by a firm structure and accented with rich, spicy notes. Has a long finish of almond and sea salt.

La Stele Blanc 2012 - 86 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This citrus flavored wine is fruity and crisp with bright acidity and just a hint of herbal character. The wine is light, bright and ready to drink.

White Wines/ Despite showing plenty of richness on the palate, this blend of 80% Rolle and 20% Clairette also shows ample freshness and acidity. Apricot, almond and melon flavors are broad yet focused, folding in citrusy notes on the long finish.
