Story

The wine
New in 2017 and presented in an exclusive and extremely elegant bottle, Estandon Farniente is synonymous with seduction, pleasure, conviviality and generosity.
Terroir
Estandon Farniente comes from several very rich terroirs which complement each other perfectly. Most of the vines are situated on the Roquebrussanne plateau, surrounded by limestone and dolomitic mountains. Its rocky soil ensures good drainage of excess water and the retention of the summer heat.
This powerful, delectable rosé also derives freshness from the slopes of Seillons- Source- d’Argens, where the vines surround the village at nearly 400 metres altitude. Its clay-limestone soil is an excellent terroir, particularly for the cultivation of the Grenache, Rolle and Syrah. This small hilltop village is also home to a treasure hidden away in its subsoil: water mines, a geological and hydrological feature that the vines love.
Insolence is created from grapes vinified in our facilities near Brignoles in the Var region, where we produce high-end rosé wines.
Vinification
The grapes are mainly harvested by machine very early in the night in order to ensure that the wine has a lovely 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.
