Story

The wine
Estandon X comes from the best terroir of the AOP Coteaux d'Aix en Provence which gives to our rosé wine a beautiful pale color with frank nuances, and fruity notes of peach and citrus.
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.
