QEF Blanc 2021

We are mainly a wine producer of AOC, but we have some plots, on each of our domains, in IGP Méditerrannée that we share with you with our "Quod Erat Faciendum" available in 3 colors.
"Quod Erat Faciendum" means: "What had to be done"... a little wink to simply share our know-how, in accessible and uninhibited wines.

Story

The wine
The charm of the "petit grain muscat" from Beaumes de Venise without the sweetness. A concentrate of the aromas from this expressive varietal.
The vintage
A very small harvest in white IGP since we are renewing the vineyard.
Location
Only one 2ha plot, on the mountainsides of the Dentelles de Montmirail, in Beaumes de Venise. An idyllic Provençal crèche setting between wild scrubland and vertiginous limestone cliffs.
Terroir
Limestone clay soils.
Muscat Petit Grain is a greek varietal, established in France since the arrival of the Phocaeans in Marseille. It needs warmth and a very good amount of sunshine, the perfect adaptation to our very well exposed plot.
