The Wine
Pithon's 2009 La D18 smells of honeydew and lime along with saline, alkaline maritime intimations, a nose that anticipates the lusciously juicy fruit and mouthwatering minerality to be found on its polished palate. Not just the primary juiciness here but also a positively vibratory finishing interplay of citrus, melon, and mineral notes and a real sense of cut are surprising and welcoming for the vintage.

Olivier Pithon borrowed the name of this road between Calce and Le Col de la Dona, it’s a good name for a cuvée. Above all for one which is uniquely based on a selection of the best slopes of White and Grey Grenache. These vines brought such great satisfaction in 2001 that there grew the desire to explore all their richness and their complexity to make a great white wine. To grow and nurture this wine in wooden vats for twelve to sixteen months, appeared to us the minimum we could do to bring out the density of these beautiful grapes.
