Story

The story
Aromatic, fresh and pleasant, to drink in the year following the vintage, Les Gourmandises d'Emma wines present well, but do not take themselves too seriously. It expresses the authentic flavors of the grape varieties present in the south-east of France. They are in line with our growing needs for thirst-quenching wines, for simple moments of conviviality. Our 2021 blend is marked by its main grape variety, Chardonnay, which expresses itself harmoniously while providing structure and aromatic complexity.
The vintage
This vintage was strongly impacted by a centenary episode of frost in April 2021, but fortunately, the plots of our wine higher in altitude, are later, and did not suffer too much from the frost.
Location
The vines of Les Gourmandises d'Emma Blend wines are located on the plains adjoining Mont Ventoux for the reds and whites, and the Massif du Luberon for the rosés. These vines benefit from exceptional sunshine and refreshing air currents from the summits.
Terroir
Classified as a "Biosphere Reserve" by UNESCO in 1990, the Mont Ventoux site serves as a setting for terroirs worked with respect for nature and the cultural and historical heritage of the region. It is in one of the coolest microclimates in the south of the Rhône Valley that our vines, perched between 200 and 500 meters above sea level, benefit from the natural protection of the “Géant de Provence” against the Mistral. Cradled by the Provençal sun, they flourish on the southwestern foothills of Mont Ventoux, sitting on hard limestone soils and old alluvium, thus giving our wines this particularity of fresh and fruity aromas.
In the vineyard
The grapes are produced on plots classified as "Protected Geographical Indication" where holm oaks, white oaks, cedars, beeches, larches and pines coexist... a large number of plant species and a varied fauna abound and transmit their authenticity and personality to our wines.
