Luberon Wine

Jean-Pierre Margan was a pioneer in the region when he took the then very bold decision to cultivate his vines organically in 1978. He had several natural factors in his favour - good elevation, underground aquifers, a long ripening season and cool night-time temperatures but even so he was committing to an unusual path. Happily, 'fortune favours the bold', so his equally astute daughter Nathalie has inherited a fine legacy and is expanding their acreage into biodynamic cultivation.

Today, Château la Canorgue cares for 40 hectares of vines and oliviers in the hills around Bonnieux and cuvées are vinified in a smart, sustainably-constructed winery. Their Luberon blanc is made from a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc that is fermented in thermo-regulated, stainless steel vats prior to clarification and bottling in the spring. Described by the Telegraph's wine correspondent Victoria Moore as 'heavenly, like light shining through cloud', the finished wine has an appealing yellow robe, sensuous stone-fruit scents and a palate redolent of peaches and apricots with a fresh, dry finish. It makes a fine foil for pissaladière, white fish or poultry. A rosé sibling is made from Syrah and Grenache Noir and has a pale pink hue, a summer berry bouquet and ripe redcurrant flavours offset by fresh acidity. Completing a commendable compendium is a red produced from Syrah, Grenache Noir and old vine Carignan. With wild Provençale herb aromas and a core of dark, autumnal fruit with peppery undertones and fine-grained tannins, it will cellar well for 5 (or more) years and makes a great accompaniment to lamb roasted with plenty of Mediterranean vegetables and garlic.
