Elegance rosé is made from grapes grown in the Triangle d’Or at the foot of the Maures mountains in the Var Department. It uses grapes from two terroirs: one featuring limestone, which is white and stony, and the other featuring sun-soaked schist, which gives this wine its distinct character. The cuvée Elegance is an expressive blend of traditional grape varieties: Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. Crafted with technical precision, it illustrates the authentic character of the Provence terroir.
