The Bécassonne cuvée comes from a unique plot, particularly suited for this production of white wine. A clay earth on a calcareous subsoil which all lies on a hill exposed to the rising sun but protected from the burning setting sun by a pine forest, allowing the grapes to fully ripen and to give a floral and exotic character to this wine while preserving a real freshness which is fairly rare for the white Côtes du Rhône Blanc.
