Cuvée Romance: an IGP Mediterranean wine
Unlike the other vintages from Bern, which are AOP Côtes de Provence, the Romance vintage is an IGP Méditerranée .
The protected geographical indication (PGI), formerly “vin de pays”, brings together wines from well-defined terroirs, with unique geographical specificities. If the IGP designation is less recognized than the AOC, it is for its lesser-known production areas, but also for its less strict specifications.
Winegrowers are then freer, whether in terms of the use of grape varieties, or in terms of viticulture and winemaking. The quality of the wines is no less excellent, and the expression of the terroir and the grape varieties remains at the heart of the producers' requirements, much more than the location of the vineyard.
The IGPs are divided into 6 regional divisions and 34 departmental divisions in France. The Romance vintage thus has the IGP Méditerranée, a regional appellation which concerns wines produced in Provence, Corsica and the Rhône.

The grape varieties of the Romance vintage
The Romance de Berne cuvée puts Provence in the spotlight. The winemaker therefore uses Provençal grape varieties which provide all the characteristics of this refreshing entry-level vintage.
Grenache is a very versatile black grape variety, which adapts to the terroir to produce delicious and generous blended wines, with aromas of blackberry and subtly spicy blackcurrant.
Particularly resistant to wind and drought, cinsault is made for Provence. Initially used for red wine, we discover it balanced and sweet in the blend of rosé wine. It then offers fruity (strawberry, apricot, citrus, hazelnut, etc.) and floral (lily, violet, lime blossom, etc.) aromas.
Renowned for producing powerful red wines, Syrah is a black grape variety also widely used for making fine and fruity rosé wine. Depending on the maturity of the grape, the wines will present more or less marked aromas of black and red fruits (blueberry, redcurrant, raspberry, blackberry, etc.).
Often associated with Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot is a Bordeaux grape variety that adapts easily to the Provençal terroir. The wine made from Merlot develops notes of blueberry, black cherry, plum, strawberry, raspberry, or even blackberry.
