    Clos de l'Ours, France
    Located close to the village of Cotignac in the heart of Provence, Clos de l'Ours is a natural clos, completely enclosed by pine & oak forest. Organic farming practices have been implemented since 2000. As of 2021, they are certified biodynamic & organic (2012). Though the Brotons family has only owned the winery since 2012, they have one of the most knowledgeable and well-respected oenologists of the region guiding them - Daniel Abrial - formerly of Domaine du Tempier, La Bastide Blanche, and Domaine de la Tour de Bon. After several years of searching for the ideal site on which to make wine, the Brotons discovered this estate, thanks to the help of their longtime friend and winemaker Eloi Durbach of Domaine de Trevallon (les Beaux, Provence). When Eloi heard this unique domaine was up for sale, he urged them to jump at the opportunity. Their focus on the terroir, producing wines that showcase the clay and limestone soils, is carried through their vineyard planting. They work with local varietals only - Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsault for the reds, and Clairette, Ugni Blanc, & Rolle, for the whites. Their son, Fabien, is now involved and oversees the cave and vinification. Their embrace of organic viticulture to produce wines of finesse and character includes the commitment to organic fertilizer, sheep weeding, plowing by horses, and no pesticides or chemical treatments. The vines are hand-harvested in small 30kg boxes and meticulously sorted before vinification. They use indigenous yeasts, and the reds are unfined and unfiltered. The resulting wines show a delicate balance of refinement and power.

    Cotes de Provence Wine

    Provence, France

    Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provencal appellations. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a region mainly influenced by the warm Mediterranean sunshine.

    Here the focus is on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production as well. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended white wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used in white wine blends, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied white wine blend, like Chardonnay, would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
