Wines of Provence
THE LOVE OF WINE THROUGH THE GENERATIONS
Beneath the sunshine of Provence, the Domaine des Oullières is a family business that owes its existence to a passion for wine. Seven successive generations of the Ambrosio Collomb family have passed on their inherited tradition of love for their soil. Today, Mireille Collomb and her family watch with love over 40 hectares of vineyards at Lambesc, not far from Aix-en-Provence, an estate predominantly on the south hillside of the Chaine des Cotes. It is onto this rocky soil that the Mistral blows, a wind both powerful and beneficial in the culture of the vine.
A RANGE OF FINE WINES, BETWEEN MODERNITY AND TRADITION
The Domaine des Oullières produces wines of the Appellation d’Origine Protégée Coteaux d’Aix en Provence and the wines of the Indication Géographique Protégée Pays des Bouches-du-Rhone. The production is primarily rosé (72%). The estate also produces 20% red wine and 8% white. The geological, geographical and climatic conditions, allied with the methods developed and refined through the generations, allow the grapes to reach full maturity and to express all the personality and originality of the soil. The variety of grapes on the vineyard is extremely diverse - black Grenache, Vermentino, Ugni blanc, white Muscat (small grains) and white Sauvignon in white varieties – and allows us to obtain refined and well-made wines.
The estate is distinguished by the prestigious vintages: the vintage “Absolu de Provence”, a subtle mixture of the best grapes which are transformed into highly expressive wines in barrels of French oak, the vintage “Harmonie de Provence”, delicate, complex and elegant, and the vintage “Plaisir”, charming and suitable for all occasions.
IN THE LAND OF CEZANNE, THE WINES SING AS STRONGLY AS THE CIGALES
The wines of Provence are renowned for their aromatic, lively, fruity and roguish character exhaling bouquets infused with provençal flavours. In Provence the rosé is King, and it is in this region, moreover, that the most beautiful rosés in the world are produced. Some are distinguished by their fresh, charmingly fruity and thirst-quenching character, or seduce through a strong personality and the remarkable expression of a unique variety.
