Louis Bernard Cotes du Luberon is light garnet in color with an intense nose of cherry and red berries. On the palate, this wine is fruity and medium-bodied with round soft tannins.
Blend: 65% Grenache, 35% Syrah
Côtes-du-Lubéron became an appellation d'origine contrôlée in 1988. Since then, great improvements have been made in the quality of its wines through rigorous vinyard selection, stringent varietal requirements and lower yields.
Vinyards are located on both southern and northern exposures of calcareous mountains called the "Lubéron". The climate, cooler than that of the Rhône Valley, explains the importance of white wine production in this region (25%).
Peter Mayle's best selling book A Year in Provence has contributed to the popularity of this beautiful region. As a result, Lubéron wines are becoming increasingly sought-after. Its white wines are well-rounded, with a clean, crisp finish.
Fresh and forward, with solid plum and black currant fruit mingling with hints of garrigue and warm stone. Tasty.
