Tasting Notes

The winegrowing estate of Chateau les Valentines is more than a century old. The estate originally brought their grapes to the local cooperative, but when Gilles and Pascale Pons took over in 1997, they decided to make their own wine. They built a modern winery and called the domaine "Les Valentines" after their children, Valentin and Clémentine. Château les Valentines now covers approximately 100 acres. The "Le Caprice de Clémentine" is part of the second range of wines coming from the estate. Moderately priced, it is a high quality Côtes de Provence made from the traditional grape varieties Cinsault (50%) and Grenache (50%). Its easy approach shows fresh and fruity aromas indicative of the region. It is light and delicate with a pure nose and good acidity to preserve freshness. Serve with traditional Mediterranean fare such as a Niçoise salad, grilled fish and vegetables, light cheeses and such.

    The Caprice has been one of our best sellers over the last five years. The 2016 is full on fruit, with a classic nose of strawberries and lemon zest. It is supple on the palate and lingers beautifully. Perfect for light salads and roasted vegetables.
