Domaine La Tourraque
Today, between La Croix-Valmer and Ramatuelle, the estate produces AOP Côtes de Provence wines. 30 hectares of vines, including rarer varietals like Tibouren or Muscat, are cultivated on the estate. Being close to the sea at the southwest of the Saint-Tropez Peninsula guarantees a windy and mild climate. The unique diversity of the soils (Granit, Schist, Clay…), helped by the grass cover and limited yields, produces lots of different flavors.
The estate cares about using the previous generations’ knowledge, but also the most modern winemaking techniques. For the reds, carbonic maceration is used for light and fruity wines, and traditional fermentation for complex and deep wines, some of which are aged in oak barrels.
For rosés and whites, the blending and the temperature management are essentials.
The clayish and granitic fields offers elegant rosé wines, with white fruits, citrus and candies aromas.
The white wines are complex, with a long mouth. The terroir expresses itself with yellow fruits and flowery aromas.
Every year original wines are created, with different types of grapes or winemaking, so as to please the many customers.
