Villa Soleilla: Nature, Light, Quintessence

Villa Soleilla : Nature, Lumière, Quintessence

At harvest time, when the whole bunches of white grapes are put in vats to complete their maceration before being pressed, the juices take on a beautiful orange hue thanks to the extraction of tannins.

Quintessence of this ancestral know-how, Gérard Bertrand's new creation, Villa Soleilla, is a great orange wine for laying down, full of finesse and delicacy, with a beautiful aromatic structure.

Located in unspoiled nature and cultivated biodynamically, the estate's six best parcels of Roussane, Viognier and Vermentino are carefully selected.

Vinified separately in amphoras and in barrels, each grape variety brings its aromatic touch, its color and its light to the wine.

Revealed today, the first vintage of Villa Soleilla is a remarkable discovery. On its label, the sun and the flower of life meet and complement each other as a promise of balance and radiance. And in the glass... it is an exceptional wine that reveals itself and stimulates a thousand creative desires when it comes to dreaming up the dishes to accompany it.

Tasting Villa Soleilla

Appearance: a beautiful limpid, golden color with delicate reflections of light.

On the nose: subtle aromas of oriental tea, with scents of incense, citrus zest (tangerines) and acacia honey

IN the mouth: a frank attack that begins with tension and fruits such as apricot, bitter orange and candied orgeat. Then reveals a harmonious structure counterbalanced by notes of creamy salted butter. The finish opens on a pleasant and light salinity specific to the terroir of La Clape with mineral notes.

To be tasted ideally at 12°C, to be opened and decanted in its young life one hour before serving to fully appreciate the complexity and breadth of this exceptional wine.

To be served with: a stew of lamb and apricots stewed, roasted vegetables with mild spices and fresh goat cheese or cow or sheep cheese aged for a long time. Or to drink as an aperitif, accompanied by bites flavored with refined spices.
