A white aromatic and fresh wine which is ideal for an evening with friends.
The Bécassonne cuvée comes from a unique plot, particularly suited for this production of white wine.
A clay earth on a calcareous subsoil which all lies on a hill exposed to the rising sun but protected from the burning setting sun by a pine forest, allowing the grapes to fully ripen and to give a floral and exotic character to this wine while preserving a real freshness which is fairly rare for the white Côtes du Rhône Blanc.
The cuvée is characterized by hints of floral and exotic fruits.
The 2018 vintage with relatively fresh temperatures during the harvest season allowed an optimal maturation of the roussanne and clairette grapes. This wine combines body and freshness and is a perfect partner for the aperitive.
