White Wine | COTES DU LUBERON | REGIONAL
The grapes are lightly crushed, then pressed in a pneumatic press, prior to clarification of the must and cool fermentation. This takes place in vats for 90% of the blend, with 10% fermented in new oak barrels with lees-stirring. The wine remains in stainless steel tanks until the month of January, when the wine is bottled after fining.

Tasting Notes


Wine Advocate

The 2011 La Vieille Ferme white comes from the Côtes du Luberon and is an interesting blend of Vermentino, Ugni Blanc and Grenache Blanc, completely naked, fresh and light to medium-bodied, with crisp grapefruit and citrus notes, as pure as a high alpine water source. It is meant to be drunk in its first 12 months of release while waiting for the next vintage, so don't make the mistake of aging this wine.
