A rosé with many stories to tell.
About the land, and the people, that make Provence and its wine special. About precious nature and our beautiful Earth.
About our cooperative members who are such a solid presence in our community and the men and women who work to transfer the life from the grapes into the wine, and all those who appreciate good rosé and have their own stories to share.

Story

The vintage
This wine reflects the spirit that drives our winegrowers who, for years, cultivate their vines organically with patience and consistency so that it offers the best of its fruit and with respect for the environment.
Terroir
The Coteaux Varois en Provence vineyard is located in the heart of "Provence Verte". In the basins and narrow valleys, production is strictly delimited within 28 municipalities grouped around Brignoles, once the summer residence of the Counts of Provence. Its terroir is distinguished by marked reliefs which culminate from 600 to over 1000 meters for the Sainte-Baume massif. Nearly 6 Estandon cooperative cellars produce AOP Coteaux Varois en Provence.
Vinification
The grapes are mainly harvested by machine very early in the night in order to ensure that the wine has a very pale appearance.
A short maceration on the skins is performed before pressing. The juices are settled at low temperature. Alcoholic fermentation is temperature-controlled and malolactic fermentation is prevented.
Vinification is carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, in the traditional manner.
