Elegance Cotes De Provence 2017
Color: A very pale peach color
Nose: Intense with ripe fruits, apricot, peach and mango. Light hint of exotic fruits with white pepper
Taste: The first taste “the attack” is very smooth. This wine has nice body that is providing sweetness, but the sandstone is providing a complex minerality that creates a really balanced wine.
Protected by the Maures hill chain, Château des Bertrands benefits from a continental climate with hot summers, intense sunshine and a prevailing easterly wind. Typical of the geology of the Maures hill chain, its soil is stony and made up of pink sandstone mixed with sandy earth. This magnificent landscape is often compared to the African savanna and is unique in France. Parasol pines amid pink sandstone outcrops and sparse cork oak scrubland are set against the blue background of the Massif des Maures.
Situated on the Permian depression stretching from Toulon to Fréjus, this area of the Maures Plain is dotted with underlying rocks that model the landscape, resulting in a dry and fairly well-drained soil ideal for healthy grape growth year in and year out.
Its high porosity limits temperature variations between day and night, hence improving grape ripening conditions and lending the wines their delightful mineral aromas.
