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  The nose first shows hints of citrus fruits, kumquats and pomelo, then evolves into notes of vine peach delicately embellished with sweet spices. On the palate, the lively and fresh attack quickly gives way to a full and fleshy sensation reminiscent of honey and candied lemon. The long finish is supported by intense fruity notes combining orange zest and cinnamon.
