Located in the heart of the Provence in the famous French Riviera, only twenty minutes away from Toulon. Rimauresq is one of the eleven “Cru Classe” in the Provence Region. Rimauresq takes his name from the local creek “Real Mauresque”.
The microclimate of Rimauresq is very particular to the appellation ‘Côtes de Provence’. The vineyard is located between the ‘Notre Dame des Anges’ mountain, at an altitude of 140 to 190 meters, and The Real Mauresque creek. It takes advantage of the Mistral wind, the shade of the mountain and the north exposition creating a cool microclimate. This particular plot is found at the foot of Maure's mountain range (situated between Toulon and Saint-Tropez). The soil is very rocky and mineral with schists pink sandstone and clay.

The malolactic fermentation is blocked to preserve the freshness of the wines. The wines will be lightly filtered before bottling.
A ready to drink wine, with a light body structured with harmony and crispness. Peach and lemon flavors are underscored by firm minerality.
