Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence: Domaine des Oullières Blanc 2018

A gorgeous, organic white wine from Provence which has been particularly well received on these shores. Food and wine matching expert Fiona Beckett recently described it as "An intense, fragrant, Vermentino-based white to drink with seafood", and we heartily concur!

Domaine des Oullières (Famille Ambrosio Collomb Vignerons)

Based just outside the picturesque village of Lambesc, 20 kilometres north-west of Aix-en-Provence on the elevated escarpment of the Chaîne de la Trevaresse, Domaine des Oullières has been run by the aptly-named Ambrosio Collomb family for 7 generations.

Their three Coteaux d'Aix wines - red, white and rosé make them an enviable one-stop shop for Provence fans. We consider ourselves fortunate to have secured a healthy annual allocation as they are making wines of real personality with a strong sense of terroir.
