“Créer un vin de lieu”
Grown in the Alpes-Maritimes, on the foothills of the Estérel, associated with the Mediterranean climate and maritime influences, the wines of Domaine de Barbossi draw their character from the richness and diversity of its terroir: crystalline Provence.
“Keeping our hands on the pulse of our lands which, for 230 years, have offered us a very lively local wine”.
“Expression du volcanisme ambiant”
Rhyolite, a volcanic red rock so particular to Estérel, comes from clay soils. In addition, the surrounding vegetation with its cork oaks and its scrubland benefit from the proximity of the sea such as the influence of the Riou river which crosses the Domaine de Barbossi. These privileged conditions thus offer a thermal and hydric balance.
In addition, certified organic, the 4-hectare vineyard offers various cuvées from the Cinsault, Syrah, Rolle, Clairette, Chardonnay and Muscat à petits grains grape varieties. A diversity of grape varieties for single-varietal vintages or blended vintages.
Indeed, with the greatest respect for the terroir, the wines are produced according to the rules of organic vinification.
The maturing accompanies the wine, without ever dominating it, favoring fermentation in frustoconical wooden vats, in concrete eggs or in stainless steel vats, always in search of subtlety and finesse. The wines then blossom in the bottle with an aging potential of 5 to 10 years depending on the cuvée.
“Un Caveau de dégustation en ville”
Since its opening on December 17, 2021, La Cave de L’Oasis has offered a very selective range of around 250 references out of the 1200 that make up the historic Oasis, as well as a range of spirits.
“Apprehend mouth and nose, feel the work of the vine, smell the art of cultivation, the richness of the land and the sensitivity of their authors”.
Indeed, it is through living wines, reflections of the terroirs, that Pascal Paulze, sommelier of L’Oasis and Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2015, will guide you towards the emotion that a wine can provide.
Located a few steps from the port of La Napoule, the address is also the place of presentation and direct sale of wines from the Domaine de Barbossi.
By equipping itself with a cellar in the town centre, the mandolocien vineyard opens the doors of its know-how to epicureans and lovers of confidential labels.
The Cave de L’Oasis, intimate and friendly, offers a tasting of Barbossi cuvées from Wednesday to Saturday, from 11am to 5pm.
