Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence wine appellation
Wine appellation
Address: Provence
Country: France

The Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence wine appellation surrounds the charming southern city of Aix-en-Provence. The appellation gained AOC status in 1985 with rose, red and white wines being permitted.
The permitted red wine grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsaut, Counoise, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Permitted white grape varieties are Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Vermentino and Ugni Blanc.
Unusually the INAO restricts the percentage of planting of certain grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan for red plantings and Ugni Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for white varieties.
