Referring to numerous wells (‘quelles’) scattered about the property, Les Quelles de la Coste is owned by John Malkovich and his partner, film director Nicoletta Peyran. The pair have lived here since the 1980s, only beginning a wine making project in 2008.
John, a long-time wine lover and a bit of a maverick, rejected mourvèdre and grenache and instead planted his favourites, pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon. The altitude of the Luberon works in his favour, as the cool nights promote elegance in the thin-skinned pinot noir while capturing ripeness during the day.
A super refreshing style of rosé, pink grapefruit and herbal notes dominate. On the palate, the acidity is mouthwatering leaving you reaching for another glass before you know it.
Organic in conversion.
