The Valcolombe estate is a charming property of 8 hectares, including 6.5 hectares of vines, a hundred olive trees and woods, all surrounded by pine forests.
The vines extend at the foot of the village of Villecroze in Provence within the appellation AOC des Coteaux Varois. Its soil is clay-limestone and limestone, its very favourable water regime and its very mild micro-climate give it an exceptional terroir on a magnificent site. The land of Valcolombe is splendid, red and fat. Harvesting is done by hand. It is one of the secrets of the excellence of our wines.
This land has given and will give birth to the best wines.

The wines
Vermentino 2013 - Protected Geographical Indication Coteaux du Verdon
"Elegant and very complex floral nose of hawthorn and honeysuckle, white fruits (pear, peach) and exotic fruits (mango, grapefruit) with notes of honey. The mouth is very balanced, very round, with a beautiful aromatic structure and an interesting finish, full with dominant white fruits. To drink now, and within five years.

Cuvée Barroque - RED PDO WINE 2012 COTEAUX VAROIS EN PROVENCE
"Jean Pierre Rous, Grand maître sommelier of France: Deep dense colour, almost cardinal, ruby reflections. Rich, powerful nose, aromas burst, a slightly smoky balsamic note. Ripe fruit, black olive, game, pepper, mineral. Complex mouth with oriental spices, deep with a beautiful positive exuberance, lamb's lettuce and melted tannins".
