Gentilice is the flagship of Demazet Ventoux production; we wanted to make a nod to the Roman period, when the vine growing was established in our village, by naming this wine Gentilice, from the name of the clans at the basis of the social organization of the empire.
This term was used until the 16th century in France to designate members of a family, and is the origin of the word ‘gentleman’. So Demazet signifies through this name the noble character of the flagship wine.
The yield is limited to 30 hl/h. Completely de-stemmed grape harvest. After fermentation and long maceration, the wine has been aged in vats and barrels for 12 months.
