Wine production in the Luberon region, located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region of southeastern France, has a rich history dating back centuries. The Luberon is known for its stunning landscapes, picturesque villages, and its role in producing quality wines, particularly red and rosé wines. 


The terroir of Luberon plays a significant role in the flavor and quality of its wines. The region’s hilly terrain and Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild winters, provide an ideal environment for grape cultivation. The stony soils contribute to the characteristic minerality and complexity of Luberon wines.


Cabernet Sauvignon is not a primary grape variety associated with Vaucluse. LQLC model this style of wine on Napa Cabs while reflecting the local terroir. If you’re a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, it can be an interesting experience to explore this wine produced in this region and see how it differs from those in more famous Cabernet Sauvignon regions.


Vines are planted at low density: 4000 per HA on parcels of land of clayey silt terroir, site of an ancient lake, characterized by deep soil where the Cabernet Sauvignon can develop without suffering from the high summer temperatures. It gives a rich, but fresh fruity taste of cherry, long lasting flavours, soft and smooth tannins. The grapes are harvested by hand in order to produce the highest quality possible.


A Provence rosé but unusually made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, giving more intensity and texture than you’d expect from its pale cousins. Early harvesting gives a zingy streak of acidity that underpins delicate strawberry and cherry fruit, with a delicious creaminess that persists on the finish. Fresh style with a little floral lift to the strawberry and lime aromatics. On the plate the acidity is mouthwatering, leaving you reaching for another glass before you know it. Certified organic.

Ideal drinking temperature 10 °C.
