Maison de la Paix
Maison de la Paix wines are a blend of tradition and modernity. For the white the traditional grape variety of the region, Viognier, is vinified using modern wine-making techniques to create a wine of complexity and smoothness. The best parcels of grapes are selected by tasting before harvesting - once harvested, grapes are crushed and undergo 6 hours skin contact before being gently pressed using a modern pneumatic press. Viognier is fermented with oak. The cuvee is then aged on its lees for several months before being bottled and released.Grapes for the Carignan Vieilles Vignes, on the other hand, are sourced from old vines with an average age of over 40 years, grown on the typical local terroir of gravel soils on south-facing slopes, with a low yield.Vinification is carried out in a very modern style. Grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and fermentation is temperature controlled at 25 degrees celsius. Once complete, the new wine is oak-aged before being bottled. These are versatile wines, able to be drunk on their own or equally at home when paired with a wide range of foods.
