Le DOMAINE DES SARRINS - Saint-Antonin du Var- AOC Côtes de Provence
Cédric Aragon, our sommelier, has picked Blanc de Rolle , IGP du Var 2013
Owned by the Champagne maker "Bruno Paillard", this Provençal area continues to progress. The "Blanc de Rolle" vintage from 100% Rolle grapes has an amazing freshness. It highlights all the winemaker's painstaking devotion: hand-picked in 3 stages, matured in barrels for 9 months.
In the mouth the aromas of pear and citrus blend with spices and hints of dried fruit.

CHÂTEAU THUERRY - located in the heart of the Haut-Var-Verdon Natural Park AOC Côtes de Provence
Our Cédric Aragon sommelier has selected this outstanding rosé, IGP des Coteaux du Verdon 2013.
An exception to the rules, Mr. Croquet took on the challenge of producing a rosé in Provence with Merlot and Caladoc grapes! Its fermentation followed by maturing in new barrels provides a subtle and effective pairing between the fruit and woody tastes.
Its roundness provides great generosity in the mouth and the slight vanilla notes give an interesting sweetness at the end.
Enjoy it with slow-cooked tuna marinated in beetroot.
LE DOMAINE DES GROS NORE - La Cadière d'Azur - Bandol AOC
Cédric Aragon has selected a red 2010 vintage for you.
Just as he built his cellar... by hand, Alain Pascal brings a meticulous attention to his wines. Nothing is left to chance, from the grape to the wine, everything is controlled and this can be felt upon tasting.
Mourvèdre releases all its power and complexity but without ever feeling aggressive. The result is finesse and an explosion of flavors, from red fruit to notes of cocoa and licorice.
Enjoy in 10 years’ time with hare à la Royale!
