Estandon Ceux de 1906, AOP Coteaux varois en Provence, Rosé, 2021 75cl

With its simple, elegant spirits’ bottle, this rosé is a novel creation that reflects all our Cooperative’s heritage and know-how. The Winegrowers Revolt at the turn of the 20th century was the inspiration for the name of this wine, which is a reference to the year when the first cooperative winery was created in the Var Department, just 6 km from the Estandon site. In a similar spirit to that of CEUX DE 1906 (the winegrowers of 1906), Estandon has used its ability to innovate to create an atypical wine t

Story

The vintage
The 2020 harvest is the first vintage of "Ceux de 1906", in which we see the exceptional talent of Estandon's winegrowers and winemakers clearly demonstrated.
The story
This wine is the result of a painstaking process of selection, ageing and blending, and has been created to bring you a new drinking experience. The different origins and toasting methods for the wood used in the ageing of “Ceux de 1906” have endowed it with an original palette of spicy, toasted and smoky.
Terroir
"Estandon Ceux de 1906" comes from several terroirs that complement each other perfectly. Some of the vineyards are located wedged between limestone and dolomitic massifs on the La Roquebrussanne plateau. Its stony soil ensures good drainage of any excess water and retains the summer heat. This fine, elegant rosé also draws its freshness from the slopes of Seillons-Source-d'Argens where the vines grow around the village at an altitude of nearly 400 metres. Its clay-limestone soil is an excellent terroir, particularly suitable for the Grenache, Rolle and Syrah. This small hilltop village also has a treasure trove hidden in its subsoil: water sources, a geological and hydrological resource that the vines love. Last but not least, "Ceux de 1906" is rounded off by the grapes picked in the heart of the Var Department near Brignoles, where we produce our top-of-the-range rosés.
