Passage in oak barrels
A Word from the Pope of Provençal cuisine:
“The exceptional soil and the knowledge of the winemakers make Château Virant a vineyard of great renown. I would like to present the estate's “Prestige White wine” to you. The name is short, without embellishment, but its dress is sparkling and shines with a thousand lights.Discreet yellow peach aromas, which give it the advantage of being enjoyed with many savory and sweet meals.
Of course, we all know that this Prestige White goes very well with fish and goat cheese.You will find it divine with a local specialty, sardines à la “Brule dé”.
This dish consists of very small sardines from our Provençal coast, grilled on embers of maritime pine twigs. These sardines are eaten without a fork or knife. If we burn our fingers, it's only in happiness. With this Prestige White, these sardines taste even more sublime.
This white wine is equally remarkable with a ratatouille. This Prestige White also pairs well with certain sweets: apricot tatin, tropézienne, kings cake, lavender honey crêpe, apple pie and many others. "

The Prestige White is an exceptional Aix-en-Provence wine. Witness the expertise accumulated by the Cheylan family over the years. This wine will present the most seductive arguments that Château Virant has to offer.
For 50 years now, Robert and Pascal Cheylan have worked the Provençal land tirelessly with the aim of producing grapes of exceptional quality. In the cellar, our cellar master, Sébastien, patiently watches over the estate's wines to gauge their evolution. He pays special attention to the Prestige white wine because it requires daily monitoring. Indeed, its aging in barrels on lees for 9 nine months requires frequent topping and tasting to check that the vintage is developing correctly.
This expertise is felt in the taste of the wine. It contains a luxurious, buttery palette. The length is lovely with an unusual vanilla finish.
On the nose, smokey and woody notes can be detected, produced by the time spent aging in oak barrels in our 17th century cellar.
This great wine of the estate can be enjoyed as an aperitif. It is also ideal with fish, white meats, lobster, foie gras, dishes in sauce, and cheeses with character.
Prestige White is a wine that should be tasted at 12℃. A chilled temperature is required to preserve the taste qualities specific to this wine.
Château Virant has an HVE 3 certification issued by the French government. This distinguished label is only obtained after having reached the highest level of environmental certification for farms. This label signifies sustainable production and practices with careful management of natural resources.
Due to their confidential production, our Prestige wines are not presented in national competitions.
Nevertheless, Andreas Larsson, voted best sommelier in the world, gave a score of 91/100 to our Prestige White in 2019.
