Les Terres Promises, The Promised Land, is located in the Village of La Roquebrussanne at the base of the Massif de la Sainte Baume, 30 km from the Mediterranean Sea and next to an organic goats cheese farm. Jean Christophe’s first challenge when he moved there was to recover the abandoned terraced vineyards that had been claimed by the forest. He is self-taught in organic farming and minimal intervention winemaking, having sought guidance from Pierre Breton (Loire) and Michel Richaud (Rhone) as well as the open discussion, exchange and assistance from other minimal intervention wine growers in France.
On the nose, the wine is deceptive as it shows aromas of strawberries and cream; typical to Provence Rosé. The palate displays green apple, slightly tart and some savoury bread notes. Kind of like a baked apple pie! Hints of clay minerality and a nice soft finish.
