"The sun sets as if in a glass of Tavel wine, in hues of iridescent ruby and topaz. All the better for it to rise in the heart". In the eyes of Frédéric Mistral, the nuances of Provençal sunsets have a distinctive flavour. Rightly so, for touching the lavender fields of the Valensole plateau, the shores of the Côte d'Azur or the tile rooftops of perched villages, the sun's last rays reveal the depth of the region's beauty. Sunset is a unique display to be enjoyed like a fine wine.
