Vignobles Famille Quiot - Domaine Houchart
Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire

Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre

The wine is light pink in color with strawberry, white peach, and almond paste aromas, as well as a certain mineral taste that comes from the terroir.

Grapes are picked early in the morning to retain their fresh aromas. The juice is settled at 54°F, and vinification takes place at 64°F. The wine is then gently matured on the lees to give it greater presence and length on the palate.

The soil is reddish with a high proportion of limestone fragments that have come down from the surrounding mountains
