Domaine Sainte Lucie
A domaine with wonderful vineyard holding on the dry stony lower slopes of the Provençal icon mountain, the Mont Saint Victoire. Forty hectares of vines with an average age of thirty-five. These deep poor soils can only support vines, and are perfect for the production of low yields and fine wines. The domaine was created in 1978 by Michel Fabre, but it is his children, fresh from their studies in winemaking and marketing who have given it the recent boost in quality of production and original presentation. The wines are made from a mix of Grenache and Syrah, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault, and the rosés get an addition of Vermentino (Rolle) which adds a bright floral expression.
