White wines from Provence: the selection of the “World”

CÔTES-DE-PROVENCE

Ravoire family, “Chantrose”, 2020

Blindly, the elegant simplicity of this wine stands out, so being simple and good is not given to all vintages. This “Chantrose” cuvée is a smooth white, but not too sweet, which remains in the flesh and sensuality. Admittedly, its length in the mouth is not phenomenal, but it is lemony, fruity, in a fair and pleasant way. In short, a treat. 8,50 €. Ravoire-fils.com

Domaine Pinchinat, 2020

This wine enchants. A real favorite. Its virtues are multiple, and the price is not the least. This blend of Rolle and Clairette grape varieties, born at the foot of the Sainte-Victoire mountain, in a family organic estate since 1990, is a wonderful surprise. With its deliciously flowery aromas, its smooth flavors, its generosity is endless. 8,80 €. Domainepinchinat.com

Château Barbanau, “L’Instant”, 2020

Many of the region’s wines, driven by a dry and sunny climate, are grown organically. We therefore find a lot of them in this tasting, but which are essential by their taste since we proceed blindly. This elegant and deep wine is certified biodynamic. What matters is its beautiful material, its balance, its harmony, and the pleasure it provides. 11,50 €. Chateau-barbanau.com

Château La Castille, “Glorius”, 2020

This wine blessed by the gods is produced by an ecclesiastical property, one of the oldest in the region. Its white wine, once served at mass, has enough history to emerge today among the best, especially with its harmony and aromas of lemon and grapefruit. This generous blend of rolle and ugni blanc conquers all palates. 12 €. Chateaulacastille.com

Domaine Saint-Andrieu, 2020

A bottle of great precision and flawless elegance. Floral, the nose offers a large aromatic palette. A great wine, therefore, of remarkable finesse and length. 12 €. Domaine-saint-andrieu.com

Domaine de l’Anticaille, 2020

This pure vermentino (or rolle, since this grape variety has the particularity of bearing both names depending on the site) spontaneously reveals an appetizing salinity. Its linearity goes straight to the point: well done, it is delicious and communicates its energy. Yes, it gives the peach thanks to a well-worked juice. A great discovery. 12,75 €. Anticaille.com

Château des Garcinières, 2020

This 100% vermentino reveals fruity notes of unique tenderness. Without any aggressiveness despite its youth, this wine spreads in a dazzling length, suggesting the brightest of futures. But without asking him to age for a long time. In short, this bottle is more than able to satisfy our appetite of the moment. Final on apricot notes. Certified organic. 13 €. Chateau-garcinieres.com
