Grand Boise Cotes de Provence White 2020
$ 60.00 incl. GST
Grown in the estate’s higher plots on clay/limestone soils, and both fermented and aged 5 months in mostly concrete tanks with 30% in 500L oak casks.
A tense expression, atypical to the often pulpy stylings of Provence whites. Citrus, white flowers and fennel dominate the palate, with an aromatic bitters quality on its finish. Long and complex, a gorgeous gastronomic style suited to a plethora of food matching.
Château Grand Boise / Provence Sainte-Victoire
A Fastidious Operation On All Levels – A Jewel Estate From An Exciting Part Of Provence
With our eye on this producer for some time, we are delighted to have finally been able to secure an allocation of these amazing wines. With first recorded history of winegrowing here in 1610, the 500 hectare property comprises 40 hectares of some 77 plots of organically grown vines (certified), over marble, limestone and red clay soils, between 300 – 600 metres altitude, making this estate the highest in Southern Provence. The diversity here of soil and aspect/altitude gives enormous scope for this estate to blend and craft complex and detailed wines, assisted by a state of the art winery replete with concrete egg fermenters.
Sainte-Victoire is a jaw-droppingly beautiful part of Provence and raises some of the region’s most distinctive wines due to its high limestone content in its soils, and the sun reflection from Mont Sainte Victoire. Grand Boise are a leading producer often used by the Provence Wine Council as a benchmark of this appellation’s style. Rosé production at this estate is 50%, bucking the region’s norm of 90%+ at many addresses.
