The nose is powerful with notes of exotic and buttery fruits. On the palate, the wine has a grandiose minerality enhanced by aromas of lychees, pineapple, pomegranate and brioche.

Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from 40m, in the heart of the garrigue surrounded by a circus of cliffs, the Commanderie de Saint Pierre la Garrigue enjoys an exceptional climate thanks to a very high level of sunshine and a maritime influence which tempers the semi-arid summer heat. The plots are planted on clay-limestone soils from the Cretaceous with a presence of gravel on the foothills of the cliffs. The vineyard is presented on two types of soil, one facing east which fully receives the maritime freshness for optimal ripening of the berries, the other facing south for intense and structured wines. The vines are conducted in cordon de royat to limit yields, thus providing aromatic intensity and structure.
The grapes are picked when ripe after tasting the berries depending on the grape variety. The best parcels of the Commanderie in Bourboulenc, Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne are isolated. Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats after careful sorting and destemming. In the last third of the alcoholic fermentation, the wines are barreled in French oak barrels of 225l and 500l. For 2 months, a weekly stirring is carried out. The barrels are then selected one by one and blended after 8 months of ageing.
The nose is powerful with notes of exotic and buttery fruits. On the palate, the wine has a grandiose minerality enhanced by aromas of lychees, pineapple, pomegranate and brioche. Aging in barrels is discreet, remarkably well melted and brings length and power. A great wine that will keep until you give in!
To be enjoyed with foie gras with figs from La Clape, hard cheese or Bresse chicken with cream. Service: between 12°C and 14°C, decanting recommended.
