    Chateau Des Vingtinieres, Provence, France

    Château des Vingtinières was acquired by Patrice Moreux of Pouilly Fumé in 1996. The vineyard is a single 35 hectare block in Cannet des Maures, on the Permien plateau in the hilly Massif des Maures inland region of the Cotes de Provence. The plateau, formed in the Permian geological era by the erosion of massive limestone mountains, has a sandy-clay topsoil over a limestone rock subsoil. Its exposition and soil ensure optimal ripening and, equally important, 30% lower yields than other vineyards in the appellation. It was the potential to produce an exceptional Cotes de Provence wines in this ideal situation that motivated Moreux to acquire the domaine.

    The vineyard is planted with Syrah (3HA), Grenache, (7HA), Cinsault (10HA) Carignan (3HA) – the vines average 30 years of age -- for the Red and Rosé and 3 hectares of white grapes divided between Rolle and Ugni Blanc. Moreaux farms sustainably: the soil is plowed and organic fertilizer is added only when necessary. The dry climate eliminates the need for vineyards treatments. Cellar work at the domaine follows the lunar cycle.

    More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern French appellation increasingly producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with its northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper and thyme) often referred to as ‘garrigue.’ The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

    Provence is internationally acclaimed for its dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines, which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, and other varieties.

    A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, from Clairette and Marsanne. Other white varieties used throughout Provence include Roussane, Sémillon, Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) and Ugni blanc.

    Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
