Tiring of life as a political consultant in Paris, Jean-Christophe Comor bought Terres Promises (then consisting simply of a cabin and several parcels of overgrown vines) in 2004. He immediately set about reclaiming the vineyards and today there are nearly 13 hectares of mainly old vines (25-40 years) situated at an altitude of 400 metres and sheltered by the Massif de la Sainte Baume in the Var region of Provence. Everything has been organic at the farm since the beginning and yields are very low. l’Apostrophe is a blend of 45% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 25% Cinsault and is floral and dry with peachy notes.
A pale salmon-pink in colour. A nose of ripe peaches, watermelon and summer red fruits. On the palate medium-bodied and refreshing leading to a lingering finish. Very moreish! Pair with pork chops with a little rosemary, goat’s cheese terrine or small toasts with a black olive tapenade.
