Personality: Joyful and lively. Fragrant nose with white flowers, a hint of lemon zest, lime, and green almonds, perfect match with tapas, cold plates and nibbles.

Vineyard: Clay, limestone, silt. 9-hectare site close to the winery in Piolenc, certified organic and biodynamic.

Making of: The grapes are harvested at night to prevent oxidation and any loss of aroma, destemmed before being crushed by a light pneumatic press. Put into concrete and spontaneously fermented for about 10-12 days with daily punch-downs at temperatures between 18 to 20 degrees centigrade. Bottled in the following winter after fining and filtration.

Winemaker's Note: The wine’s name is a double-sens pun: Jeu de Rolle means “role-play” in French while also giving away the grape it’s made of, the zesty Mediterranean darling Rolle, also known as Vermentino in Italy.
