Easter Pick 2012

The domain Commanderie de la Bargemone is spread over 150 hectares. 66 hectares of vines of which 56 hectares are red grapes and 10 hectares are white grapes. The delicate choice of the different varieties: Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache or Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wines of Commanderie de la Bargemone their specific quality and a remarkable consistency.
The wines of the "Commanderie de la Bargemone" are characterized by the smoothness of their structures. They are traditional and typical of the region of Provence yet widely appealing.

Bordered by the River Durance to the north and the Mediterranean to the south, the heart of Coteaux de Aix-en-Provence appellation is the historical town of Aix-en-Provence, to which the Romans were drawn by its nearby thermal springs. Wines have been made in this area since Roman times and were championed in the 15th century by Rene I of Anjou.

The appellation - Provences second largest after Cotes de Provence - has roughly 3,500 hectares given over to viticulture. Almost 60% of the wines produced here are red, followed by 35% rose and 5% white, while the most important grapes are Grenache, Cinsaut and Mourvedre.

The climate here is Mediterranean but arid (nearby appellation Les Baux-de-Provence boasts the stunning Val
d Enfer, said to have inspired Dante's descriptions of hell in his Inferno).
