More about this wine
Château des Sarrins
The vineyards of the Château des Sarrins are 22 hectares, in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, southern France, located around the village of Saint-Antonin du Var, on hills 250 meters high and mostly clay-limestone soils. The estate is owned and operated by Bruno Paillard, a famous Champagne producer of the same name. When he bought the vineyards in 1995, they were planted with Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. These valuable plantations over the age of 50 have been preserved and carefully maintained. The rest of the land is planted with Syrah, Mourvèdre and Rolle. In 2012 the mansion received the status of an organic producer. Bruno Paillard's exceptional precision in the vineyard and winery make his wines one of the most elegant in all of Provence!All wines of the same producer
Vermentino is a white wine grape variety grown in various places in the western Mediterranean: northwestern Italy, southern France and the neighboring islands of Corsica and Sardinia. It is known by different names - Pigato in Liguria, Favorita in Piedmont and Rolle in Provence, although there is a disagreement as to which of them are synonymous with Vermentino and which are separate varieties. It is an indisputable fact that Vermentino wines, Pigato wines, Favorita wines and Rolle wines have many common features - refreshing acidity and attractive aromas of peach, lemon peel, dried herbs and saline minerality. Vermentino's genetic and geographical origins are quite uncertain and unclear, which contributes to disagreements over his identity across countries. Some theories claim that in Italy he comes from Spain, others say the exact opposite, and there is a third theory that his homeland is in the Middle East and in the Mediterranean arrives through Greece. However, the variegated and foggy past of the variety does not prevent its spread and its ability for strong terroir expression. In Liguria Vermentino (Pigato) is the main variety in white wines from Colli di Luni. Here, the freshness and minerality of the wines reflect the cool, bright landscape of Carrara's marble quarries. In the west, the Vermentino vines have taken root in the dramatic vineyards of the Cinque Terre. Here, using the passito (sun-drying) method, the variety is a key component in the jammy, similar to nectar Cinque Terre Sciacchetra sweet wine. In Tuscany, the Vermentino vineyards around Bolgheri produce some of the richest Italian white wines. The warm and sunny Tuscan climate in combination with various oenological techniques (contact with the skins, aging on fine lees and aging in barrels) contributes to the creation of wine comparable in density and aromatic complexity with the wines of the Viognier variety. In Sardinia, Vermentino is the key grape for local white wine production and enjoys its own name, Vermentino di Sardegna, which is used to make one of the island's most prized wines, Vermentino di Gallura. The proximity of Corsica and Sardinia suggests the presence of Vermentino on the French island as well. Here it is also a key component in the white wines from all over the island and is successfully grown in the vineyards of Patrimonio, Ajaccio, Figari, Calvi, Sartene, Porto-Vecchio and the peninsula "Cap Corse." Vermentino does not miss the Provencal coast of southern France. Here, however, it is traditionally known as Rolle, although it is increasingly referred to by its more modern Italian name Vermentino. Of particular note are Bellet's white wines, which are made from at least 60% Vermentino.More wines of the same variety
