TASTING NOTES

A bright and limpid light pink. Floral and fine bouquet that evolves into fruity aromas of raspberry. Fullness and harmony on the palate. The aromatic power is reinforced by a hint of acidity that gives a pleasant liveliness. The finish is fruity with anise flavour.

THE FAMILY

The Domaine de La Royère is a family wine estate run by Anne and Jean-Pierre Hugues since 1988. It's here in Oppède, located between Avignonand Apt steps away from the Luberon hill, that they grow the best Rhône Valley grapes in order to fully express their brand. 

THE LAND

In the roman era, La Royère was a crossroads, a fording passage on the river. The road led to the Via Domitia, which ran parallel to the current D900 road and was a major axis of the Roman empire. 

The Domaine de La Royère has been growing wines in its own name since 1988, and formerly was a family vineyard since the beginning of the 20th century. Over the years, the estate got continuoulsy improved with a constant eye to quality. Today, it boasts 30 hectares (approx. 60 acres) of vineyards spread across the best terroirs of Luberon.
