Domaine de Rimauresq
Côtes de Provence,
Côtes de Provence - Cru Classé

Rimauresq takes its name from the Real Mauresque, the river that flows through the vineyards. The domaine sits at the foot of the Massif des Maures mountain range, 20 minutes from Toulon. With a unique microclimate, the estate benefits from both the cooling mistral winds and the shade of the mountains above. This shade gives a longer ripening period in the crucial weeks prior to harvest. Nine noble grape varieties are found at Rimauresq, including Cinsault, Mourvedre, and Tibouren for the rosés.

Senior winemaker Pierre Duffort has many years of winemaking experience in the Côtes de Provence appellation. Before leading Rimauresq, he directed his family domaine, La Moutete, at nearby Cuers. Since his arrival at Rimauresq, the domaine has won industry-wide recognition for excellence. It was awarded three stars in three consecutive years by Guide Hachette.
