The men have tried to tame it but finally the vines benefit from the freshness it brings and the surrounding microclimates. Finally, the Durance and the Luberon valleys close this territory seen as French Tuscany.
A PGI protects these wines and allows, in contrast to the AOC, greater creative freedom for winegrowers. In the Vaucluse, about a hundred grape varieties are authorised, all the grapes used in a Vaucluse wine come from the territory defined by the PGI.
Close to the great reds of the Rhône, the PGI Vaucluse produces first red, then rosé and a quarter of white.
For reds, grenache, carignan and syrah are used mainly. A beautiful purple colour with purple hues and a bouquet with red fruit notes. On the palate, we find a round and delicate wine but also freshness, and a finish with sweet spices.
The rosés are pale salmon pink with a rather delicate nose around the citrus fruits. Perfect for aperitifs with a fresh taste.
The whites, made from white grenache and viognier, have a pale yellow colour with fairly clear green reflections. The aromas present are white flowers, stone fruits and a slight acidity. In the mouth they are fruity and delicate with a mineral touch. They will go very well with your fish.
