The Domaine du Deffends

The Domaine du Deffends is situated in the foothills of Monts Auréliens running along the ancient Roman road of the same name. The soil is chalky, arid and porous.

Thanks to its gentle incline and privileged south-eastern orientation, the du Deffends vineyard has never suffered the effects of frost. Production is kept deliberately low by aggressive pruning and, if necessary, early harvesting of the grapes.

The Domaine du Deffends is a small family business led by a spirited team of aficionados. We strive to take full advantage of the superior soil and climate through a rigorous commitment to quality. In doing so, we offer wine enthusiasts the assurance of a product that goes directly from our cellar to the table without manipulating or tampering with the contents in any way.

Rosé d’une Nuit 2017

« Le nez est discret mais fin et développe de petites notes de fleurs fraîches et de fruits blancs. En bouche, c’est structuré, fruité avec une belle longueur. »
