Domaine Houchart has fifty hectares of vines, situated at Puyloubier, at the foot of the famed Mont Saint Victoire, 17 kms east of Aix en Provence. Since 1984, these wines have been commercialized by Vignobles Jerome Quiot. Because of the size of the domaine, 80 hectares, it is possible to take full advantages of a wide variety of soil types, with predominantly sandy, chalky soil and deeper beds of clay and silt. This allows adequate drainage of rainfall and ensures the vines are able to produce the best possible quality. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, & Mourvedre. Winemaking: Pneumatic pressing. Settling at 10 degrees. Stainless steel vats at 18 degrees. Tasting notes: This lively, crisp wine gives both intense acidity and great fruitiness. It’s bright, with a line of fresh red currant flavors that are delicious and drinkable right now.
