Our selection was made in the area around the Montagne Sainte Victoire, a magnificent limestone mountain ridge located east of the town of Aix-en-Provence and celebrated in the paintings of Cézanne. The vines cover the slopes of the Arc valley and are influenced by a continental climate, protected to the south from maritime effects by the Aurélien mountains and the Sainte Baume massif. The stony, well- drained soil that has formed around this massif in addition to a cooler climate yield livelier, better-structured wines with exceptional balance.
