VENTOUX WINES BENEFIT FROM AN UNSPOILT NATURAL ENVIRONMENT OF EXCEPTIONAL BIODIVERSITY. LISTED AS A BIOSPHERE RESERVE BY UNESCO IN 1990, THE MONT VENTOUX SITE IS THE PRIVILEGED SETTING FOR VINEYARDS WORKED WITH RESPECT FOR THE REGION’S NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND FOR ITS HISTORIC AND CULTURAL HERITAGE. INSPIRED BY THIS PROFUSION, VENTOUX RED WINES ARE SMOOTH AND RICH IN FLAVOURS, RANGING FROM RED-BERRY FRUITS AND SPICES TO LEATHER, LIQUORICE AND TRUFFLE.THE LUBERON IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUTHERLY WINE-GROWING AREAS OF THE RHONE VALLEY. EMBLEMATIC OF PROVENCE, THE REGION IS ESPECIALLY RICH IN ARCHITECTURAL TREASURES: CATHEDRALS, CASTLES, HILLTOP VILLAGES AND RENAISSANCE BUILDINGS. VINES HAVE FLOURISHED HERE SINCE ANTIQUITY, TAKING POSSESSION OF A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT PRESERVED WITHIN THE REGIONAL NATURE RESERVE (PARC NATUREL RÉGIONAL). THE WINES BENEFIT FROM THE WARMTH OF THE MEDITERRANEAN CLIMATE, BUT ALSO HAVE A NICE FRESH FINISH. THE FACT THAT THE VINEYARDS LIE AT ALTITUDES OF BETWEEN 200 AND 450 METRES MAKES FOR A WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGE THROUGHOUT THE DAY, WHICH IMPARTS FRESHNESS TO THE WINES. THE REGION ALSO PRODUCES SOME DELIGHTFULLY ELEGANT WHITE WINES, TO WHICH THE VERMENTINO GRAPE CONTRIBUTES ITS SPECIAL CITRUS FLAVOURS.
