Vineyards & Viticulture
The Clos de l’Ours stands close to the village of Cotignac, in the heart of Provence between the Gorges du Verdon and the Côte d’Azur. The vineyard, at the gateway of Haut-Var and surrounded by a pine and oak forest, is planted with 13 hectares of vines in Côtes de Provence. The vineyard has been farmed according organic principles since 2000; included in this commitment is the use of organic fertilizer, sheep weeding, ploughing by horses, and no pesticides or chemical treatments.
Harvest & Vinification
Manually harvested early in the morning to preserve freshness, using small, 30 kg boxes with a meticulous sorting in the vineyard and then at the cellar. The grapes are pressed directly after being sorted. Minimal intervention during winemaking process with native yeasts. Wines mature on fine lees in enameled steel vat.
