Editors notes

The perfect pale salmon colour, coming from the blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and a splash of Ugni Blanc. Made from the prestigious subregion of Maures - the southern-most tip of the gulf of St Tropez.

An attractive nose of strawberry, redcurrant and violets backed by a hint of Provencal lavender. Feather light at only 12% alcohol and refreshingly bone dry, this is spot on for summer drinking.

'One Maures' is pronounced One More, because that's what you want after you try a glass!

    "Winemaker Bruno Seignez and his son run their tiny winery in the southern edge of Provence near the town of Cogolin, a stones throw from the gulf of Saint-Tropez. This wine shows the classic white peach and floral nose, backed by a delicious, slatey minerality. Elegant, pretty and deliciously drinkable."

Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Provence

Located in the South of France, the Provence wine region boasts a classic Mediterranean climate, with warm, sunny summers and adequate rainfall following mild winters. The famed Mistral wind provides an important cooling influence here. The region has become virtually synonymous with now-ubiquitous pale-pink rosé winés. These utterly drinkable, food-friendly wines consist primarily of Grenache Noir and Cinsault, and the best expressions nicely balance fresh fruit, herbal notes, and acidity. Other red varieties here include Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The region produces small amounts of white wine as well, from such varieties as Vermentino (the locals refer to it as Rolle) and Clairette. Provence has three primary appellations: Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois en Provence.

About the brand Domaine Val d'Astier

Twelve years after the first steps to regain a wild nature, the Valley of Val d'Astier has kept its authentic, natural, made for sharing. Today, a new valley twelve hectares "The White Stones" planted with vineyards and olive trees just born to enlarge this little corner of paradise. In the eyes of Bruno and Ellen, still burns energy of those who have shaped the hill, cleared, planted, designed trays and hillsides that are exposed to the best vines in soil that is proud of a vine promised the best, with these small flames increasingly talking of shared happiness, a certain success. The rest is always a matter of time, leaving to nature the care of the express and winemaker, the "peasants", a term they claim, the time to work the vineyards, market gardening, olives, honey. Grapes love when at the dawn of each harvest animates the hand of the winemaker and his expertise, born colors. Know-how acquired by Bruno in Burgundy, tweaked in Bandol, completed in Provence where he learned, heard, tried, directed, for now at the heart of their valleys are born of his hands artisan winemaker, the delicacy of a white, the strength of a red, the many flavors of rosé, vinified in the cellar dug under the earth, also won in the hill. A situation that allows it to maintain a natural freshness and keep the wine safe from thermal variations. Ellen remained the accomplished gardener debut and if it does not produce for lack of time the generous baskets of colorful vegetables sun, appreciated by all, the piece of land conquered in the garrigue, fashioned courage dons vegetables and herbs appreciated the great leaders of the region, it delivers during the summer season. While the sheep still graze in the vineyard (from autumn to spring), the field also vibrates the many hives (harvest to lafloraisondelavigne) producing honey "demaquisetdemontagne" unusual reflecting the botanical richness of an unspoilt environment. This very fragrant, sweet nectar, floral and fruity is present in the cellar, along with the spices, grape juice, wine and of course, the new season will seduce you.
