01. Introduction

Manon,
an exceptional cuvée
of Côtes de Provence wine

Produced in the heart of the Côtes de Provence, Manon is the result of a careful selection of the very best plots in the appellation. Its emblem is the olive tree as a reference to the terroir of our Rosé wines nestled between the sea and the land and set in the midst of Mediterranean landscapes.

The history

A singular history and a unique terroir

Created in 1996 by a master Italian glass designer, Manon is featured as an original slender feminine silhouette. This unique bottle has seen its design modernised over the years and confers both identity and character to this Côtes de Provence wine.

Manon is also a tribute to a famous and popular name for girls in the French Provence region. This vintage is after the image of the name, free spirited yet true to its terroir of origin : The Provence.

Here vineyards spread out over 200 kilometres, growing on two main geological zones : the first is composed of limestone in the western and northern part of the appellation ; the second covers the eastern part facing the Mediterranean Sea with a crystalline soil. The Provence region features soil that is poor and well drained. With no excess humidity the grapes develop concentrated flavours reaping the benefits of an ideal orientation facing the sun.

Our Manon wine is produced from grapes that grow on the best plots of the Côtes de Provence region. Blending and aging is entrusted to our teams of enthusiastic specialists who are keen to express the typicity and authenticity of the terroir. This expert task is orchestrated by our in-house oenologist Pierre Vieillescazes.

  • Varietals

    The main varietal used in Manon wine is Grenache. It brings fat, ampleness and potency to the wine. The blend is complemented with Cinsault that confers freshness, finesse and fruitiness. Finally, our oenologist adds a touch of Syrah to enhance the colour and structure of the cuvée.

  • Vinification & maturing

    They are picked in the freshness of the night at their ideal ripeness between sweetness and acidity and immediately cold-pressed. Only the first juices are retained from the press to ensure an optimal clear colour. This is followed by cold clearing and low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel vats to preserve the fruity flavours. Finally, they are placed on lees to age after fermentation with occasional stirring to make the wine denser and more complex.

  • Tasting Notes

    Manon presents a clear and shiny pink colour. The nose opens on flavours of white flowers (honeysuckle) and stone fruit (peach). The mouthfeel is rich, potent and fresh with remarkably long lasting flavours.

  • Temperature

    The ideal temperature for drinking this of this cuvée is between 10 and 12°C.
