This is a wine to buy because of the commitment of two of Burgundy’s greatest names: Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée Conti. The bouquet is alive with rich notes of honeysuckle, apricot, honey and white flowers. Full-bodied and decadent with textbook apricot, flowers and honeysuckle flavours. A wine that will comfortably stand beside a more expensive Condrieu.

Stuart McCloskey

Producer

The pair behind this stunning wine are among the greatest names in Burgundy; Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanee Conti, so quality is guaranteed. In 1989 they purchased a neglected 46 hecrate estate in Provence and with their incredible influence alongside the Southern exposure and the clay and limestone soils, they began to produce stunning wines with great terroir and classic Provencal characteristics. They invested heavily in the renewal and tending of the vines and this focus on the vineyard remains a priority today.

The historic region of Provence sits along the Mediterranean coast of France and is blessed with the perfect climate for growing grapes.

Wine has been made in this region for over 2600 years and throughout the regions history wine-making and viticulture have been influenced by the cultures that have passed through – ancient Greeks, Romans and Gauls to name a few – and these cultures are responsible for introducing a large variety of grapes to the area. Provence has 8 major wine regions with AOC designations - the Côtes de Provence and the Coteaux d’Aix en Provence being the two main regions but other well-known regions are Cassis, Bandol, Bellet and Palette. The main grape varieties used in the region are Rolle, Ugni Blanc, Bourboulenc and Rhône varietals such as Clairette, Marsanne, Rousssanne and Grenache Blanc for white wines and Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan and Cinsault for red and rosé wine production.
