About: The Domaine de Fave vineyard covers nearly 8 hectares, divided into 2 islets, around the Bastide de Fave and above the Prieuré Notre-Dame chapel. The Bastide de Fave vineyard covers 3 hectares of Syrah, Rolle and Cinsault established around the Bastide de Fave on terraces facing east. This site, protected by a cirque of hills culminating at an altitude of 360 meters, offers clay-limestone soils from a subsoil of limestone and dolomite. These lands are the seat of karst-type circulations which give rise to numerous resurgences, which explains the presence of two springs outcropping on these hillsides. Exposed to the east and sheltered from the mistral, maturation there is relatively late, which makes it possible to retain freshness for the rosé wines.
Tasting Notes: Cinsault 45%, Rolle 35% and Syrah 20%. Cuvée demonstrates a character that is both lively and delicate. The Cinsault grape variety, the majority in the blend, gives it great finesse and notes of white fruits (pear, white peach), while Syrah and Rolle bring a nice roundness and enrich the aromatic palette with gourmet notes of red fruits.
