The white wines of Provence

The white wines of Provence are little known because they are not widely produced. Representing just 4% of the production of the 3 Provençal appellations, Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d'Aix en Provence and Coteaux Varois en Provence, they stand apart from their big brothers, the rosés!

However, the white wines of Provence have nothing to envy of them, offering similar aromatic characteristics and, like the rosés, plenty of notes of fruit, citrus and lemon, white fruit and white flowers. Another similarity is the freshness on the palate, which can become rounder and more complex after a few months in barrel.

The king grape variety, "Rolle", the Provençal name for Vermentino, is found all around the Mediterranean, with a strong presence in Corsica as well as in Italy and Sardinia. Only Rolle can be vinified as a single grape variety in the Côtes de Provence appellation. Otherwise, it is blended with Clairette, Semillon and Ugni Blanc.

How should Provence white wines be served?

Once again, it all depends on the Provence white wine.

Fruity, juicy, crisp Provence whites should be served between 10°C and 12°C, but never chilled so as not to lose their aromatic expression.

The most complex, the great whites of Provence, should be served slightly less chilled by removing them from the cellar fifteen minutes before serving. Serve between 12°C and 14°C.

How should Provence white wines be enjoyed and what food should they be served with?

As an aperitif of course, with shellfish, especially oysters.

But also, what else to serve with Provence white wines

  • Mackerel rillettes with fresh herbs, tarragon and even basil
  • Sautéed rabbit in white wine, light cream, served with blanched fennel
  • Sole meunière and a few sautéed pommes grenailles
  • A platter of goat’s cheese or ewe’s cheese, preferably creamy!
