BACKGROUND

Domaine Jacourette is a family owned winery located in the heart of the Ste. Victoire Mountain sub-appellation of Provence, just east of Aixen- Provence. The winery has been managed by the Dragon family for four generations, with daughter Helen Dragon appointed as the estate’s winemaker in 1997. She was joined by her husband, Frederick Arnaud in 2004. The couple works tirelessly to create wines expressive of their Provencal origin.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

The grapes grow on clay and limestone soils at 985 feet above sea level, in the Sainte. Victoire sub-appellation of the Provence region. The grapes are harvested and undergo two hours of maceration before 16 days of alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 59°F. The wine rest in the tanks for three months before it is bottled.

TASTING NOTES

Lovely aromas of candied strawberry and citrus lead way to a balanced mouthfeel of refreshing cranberry and bright red fruits. A delightful aperitif that is a wonderful accompaniment to a wide range of appetizers, fish, poultry dishes and vegetarian fare.
