Vignobles Famille Quiot - Domaine Houchart
Côtes de Provence
A blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and  Cinsault
The wine is light pink in color with strawberry, white peach, and almond paste aromas, as well as a certain mineral taste that comes from the terroir.
Serve at  54°F as an aperitif, with salads and savory tarts.
Grapes are picked early in the morning to retain their fresh aromas.
The juice is settled at 54°F, and vinification takes place at 64°F. The wine is then gently matured on the lees to give it greater presence and length on the palate.
The soil is reddish with a high proportion of limestone fragments that have come down from the surrounding mountains.
