Thuerry castle, vineyard in Provence, in the heart of the Natural Regional Park of Haut-Var-Verdon, produces three different names due to the location of the vineyard is at the crossroads of three municipalities: Flayosc - AOC Côtes de Provence Villecroze - AOC Coteaux Varois en Provence & Tourtour-Vin de Pays des Coteaux du Verdon. The whole area covers 340 hectares, including 45 hectares of vineyards and about 750 olive trees. Our wine production is available in several ranges: three vintages of wines: Château Abeillons & The Exception and two traditional method: Blanc de Blancs and Rosé - Bubbles tangled.
Vinification ended in November leaving room for aging wines, sometimes in oak barrels including all wines Exception, the Abeillons red, and Autumn Legend, sometimes in concrete vats, stainless steel or wood.
After regular monitoring of the evolution of wines, it came time assemblies for white and rosé.
A delicate and important time where Serge Gombert Director of Operations, our oenologist, our cellar master and winemaker Jean-Louis Croquet, agree to obtain a synergy between the vines to maximize the potential of the vintage and you ensure consistent quality year after year.
This year, the wines are particularly hungry, eager and fresh, with pale colors including our rosés The Castle and The Abeillons.
Just a little patience! The bottling begin in late January and will continue until spring. The first bottles of white and rosé wines of the vintage will be available in March 2012, both in the field and in the cellar at your favorite restaurant & wine shop.
