Provence and Corse

 

Provence

 

The wines of Provence have a very ancient origin. The Greeks, the founders of the good city of Marseilles, planted the first vines. Caesar speaks in his memoirs during the conquest of Gaul.
 
Provence wine is produced on the Provençal coast, along the Mediterranean, La Ciotat to Saint-Raphael, then Sanary to Carnoules and around the valley of the Var.
 
Many varieties are used in the design of the Provence wine. We may retain among the red varieties: Carignan, Cinsault, Mourvèdre. Among white varieties: Ugni, Clairette and Rolle.
 
Rosé is the specialty of the region. It is tasty, fruity and a shimmering dress.
 
The white wine is quite dry, and sometimes sparkling. It marries perfectly with seafood nearby.
 
Thus the Provence wine is the essential companion to the bouillabaisse and salad nicoise.
