La Marquise de l’Orpailleur
« Beautiful amber colour. Flower, mandarin bark and orgeat flavours with fresh grape overtones. Smooth and well-balanced, long-lasting and pleasant taste with a slightly bitter finale for an added feeling of freshness. A romantic aperitif. »

« It was a bygone era when Pagnol brought hischaracters to life in Provence, filled with sweet smells and sunlight. When townspeople gathered on Sunday afternoons, Marquise wine was served. Each household had its own recipe, its own unique flavour. Men talked loudly, women more quietly, but the most important things remained unspoken. Love was in the air, people enjoyed each other’s company and laughed without inhibitions. We’ve tried to recreate the joy and poetry of those times: raise a cheer and be happy! »
