In Puyloubier, twenty kilometers east of Aix-en-Provence, at the foot of the Montagne Sainte Victoire, Michel Fabre founded Domaine Sainte Lucie in 1978. The average thirty-five-year-old vines of Sainte Lucie stand on a thin layer of calcareous sandy and red clay soil full of stones. Actually only a soil suitable for wine grapes. This mainly concerns the red varieties Grenache and Syrah, supplemented with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and of course Carignan and Cinsault.

For the white MIP Classic, carefully picked Vermentino (called Rolle in France) from poor clay-rich vineyards with young vines, is soaked for one day as whole grapes and then after pressing for three weeks and fermented in refrigerated tanks. After that, the juice rests on its yeast sediment for another 3-4 months to develop an even more beautiful fruitiness. Beautiful light-green reflections that belong to a beautiful young wine and with time it takes on a golden yellow color. Delicious as an aperitif or with grilled langoustines. Soft, young fresh cheeses are also a delicious combination.

Because the grapes on the estate enjoy optimal planting in relation to the sun, they can reach full and ripe maturity in good health. In humid weather, the pleasant mountain winds - of which the Mistral is perhaps the best known - ensure that mold and rot do not get a grip on the trusses. It makes organic farming at Domaine Sainte Lucie an easy challenge. Naturally, the nature-friendly approach on the domain also has repercussions on the wines of Sainte Lucie. They are fruity, elegantly spicy, floral and pure. Add to that the modern bottle versions and the rosés of Domaine Sainte Lucie can be counted among the most tempting Provence wines for every occasion and every moment of use.
