The Cuvée Luc blanc is a blend of Grenache 50%, Viognier 20% and Roussanne 20%, Clairette 10%. The vineyards are between 16 - 25 years old and organically grown and produced. The wine is now also certified organic. There is no chemical weed control and the fertilization is very moderate with organic manure, including compost and sheep manure. The terroir of the vineyard consists of clay-sand and lime-sand with many stones. Harvest always takes place between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m. in the morning to prevent spontaneous fermentation. The wine remains on its own lees for 4-5 months after which the wine is bottled almost unfiltered during April of the year.

The Cuvée Luc blanc is a nice fresh and complex white wine. The aromas of blossom, citrus fruit and apricot fly out of the glass. In the mouth this wine is nicely balanced and has a surprisingly long finish. In the glass the wine has a fresh light golden yellow/green color. In the nose, the wine is dusty with scents of citrus fruit, white blossom, gooseberries and a little white peach. In the mouth we taste white fruit with a good balance between acid and alcohol. In the aftertaste, the wine is fresh, elegant and round. Certified Organic/Vegan

Fact: This wine is also served in the Rijksmuseum.

Vineyard for 2021 Domaine de Marotte Cuvee Luc Blanc BIO

Domaine de Marotte is a winery whose owners are originally from the Netherlands, they say themselves: "Dutch wine, from France!". The owners are Daan and Elvire van Dijkman and the winery is located in Provence, in the South of France. Domaine de Marotte stands for ' favorite hobby' and before it came into the hands of the current owners already owned by the 'van Dijkman' family.

Daan studied food technology with a specialization in beverage technology and Elvire learned about horticulture. As you can already imagine, this is a nice combination of knowledge for working in a wine domain. They started in 1997 and they now have about 16 hectares of vineyards, so they are quite successful.

Domaine de Marotte is therefore located in the heart of Provence at the foot of the famous Mont-Ventoux. In the 16 ha of vineyards, all kinds of wines are made organically. They have already won quite a few prizes with the wines they make. The year is full of sunshine, so it shines 300 days a year, which ensures perfectly ripe grapes because there is just enough rain between these sunny days.
