Crystal-clear pale candy pink color. A sweetly elegant nose, with aromas of raspberry, white and yellow peaches and citrus fruits. The palate is beautifully balanced between mouthwatering acidity, a round, supple texture and the fruity flavours detectable on the nose. Sensible food matches: This is a wine ideally suited to spring and summer drinking. Aromatic and refreshing, it works perfectly with all kinds of Mediterranean produce, from rock fish and our famous bouillabaisse to sea urchins, shellfish, fish grilled on fennel twigs, lamb, stuffed vegetables, anchoiades, ailolis, pesto-flavoured dishes and those perfumed with saffron. It also makes a brilliant partner for dishes with Asian flavorings.
|Wine maker notes
|Estandon has been expressing the personality of Cotes de Provence A.O.C. wines with talent since 1947. With each vintage, Les Vignerons Estandon strive to create wines which are an open invitation to pleasure and conviviality.
|This wine pairs nicely with grilled seafood and is a fine, subtle match with Mediterranean cuisine.
|1947 Jean Bagnis launched Estandon. Consistency, quality and service were the strategic ingredients that were to go on to make Estandon a success. At the time, this pioneer already realised that to make an impression, you had to be different.
In 1973, the winemakers in the wine cooperatives - especially in the Var - pooled their expertise with the creation of a cooperative union.
In the early 1980s, the union built cellars and offices in Brignoles, and bottling and bag-in-box packaging activities began to develop. As the vintages passed by, new wineries in the Var and Bouches-du-Rhone joined the group, uniting around the “Cellier de Saint Louis” brand.
In 2005, the union welcomed the Vignerons des Caves de Provence, owners of the Estandon brand. Thus the “Cercle des Vignerons de Provence” was born, representing 10 % of wine production in Provence.
In 2012, on the strength of this collective success, all the winemakers entered into a new dynamic: Estandon Vignerons. This new era is based on the principles that have ensured ??the success of the brand: committed values, a talent for sharing, responsible behaviour, and an invitation to discovery.
