Château d’Astros
Côtes de Provence
Rolle (Vermentino Blanc)
Cuvée Spéciale Blanc reflects the expression of one grape variety, Rolle. This fine, lively, and truly elegant wine develops floral aromas, such as hawthorn, and notes of fruit, like pear and apple.
Perfect accompaniment for shellfish, seafood, and grilled fish, as well as for sharp cheeses.
Grapes are mechanically harvested
On arrival at the chai, the grapes go through a short period of pellicular maceration to extract as much of the aromatic character as possible from the grapes, before moderate pressing in a pneumatic press. After cold settling, alcoholic fermentation takes place at a maximum temperature of 63°F for 15 to 20 days.
Hilly terrain; pebbly, limestone, and dry soils, producing grapes with powerful and complex aromas
