Château Revelette, Côteaux d’Aix
Château Revelette is an organically-certified, 30 hectare estate run by German transplant Peter Fisher in the Côteaux d’Aix-en-Provence AOC. nd his wife Sandra, who have one aim: to craft ‘real’ wines, which are the purest expressions of their stunning terroir. A graduate of UC Davis, California, Peter first moved to Provence with the dream of owning his own vineyard; Revelette now comprises 30ha of land under vine, divided into 17 distinct plots with 11 different grape varieties, which Peter farms organically and follows biodynamic principles. At an altitude of 330m-400m, it has one of the coolest climates of Provence, which slows the ripening of the grapes, resulting in elegant, aromatic wines with unique characters.

Grapes: 70% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, 5% Carignian
