Refined and elusive, the deeply rooted vines bring strength and vigour, the wind ensures a healthy life, and the sun concentrates the aromas. Then, there is the winemaker’s instinct that guide the grapes to maturity, transforming them into a quality wine.

Taken from the first chapter of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's book The Little Prince, the name of this cuvée translates as What is important, is invisible to the eyes. This organic blend of Clairette and Rousanne may look like any other Rhône wines, but it will steal your heart.

In the glass the colour is straw yellow. There are aromas of lime blossom and stone fruits. The palate is rich and complex, yet fresh. It has a beauiful minerality and salinity.

Pair this with a Provencal tart of tomatoes, anchovies, onions and black olives.

More Information


Rhône Valley, France

The Rhône Valley has been a hub of wine culture since ancient times. Viticulture arrived with the Greeks in the 4th century BC. But it was the Romans who really established the vineyards and reputation of the area using the Rhône as their highway through France.

The region's wines are known for their richness, depth, and complexity, and their ability to age beautifully. They many illustrious villages including Chateauneuf du Pape and Côte-Rôtie.


Christian Gourjon, Château Font Barriele

For four generations the Gourjon family have farmed the terraces of the Rhône. Their wines are a delicate, yet powerful expression of a centuries-old vineyard. 

Set at the crossroads of the Costières de Nîmes and Côtes du Rhône appellations, Château Font Barrièle is a jewel in the heart of history. Forming part of a nature reserve, their emblem is the little bustard, a protected species which soars above the vineyards.



Roussanne is a late-ripening, white, grape variety that produces powerful, perfumed wines with scents of fresh flowers, peaches, herbs, pears, spice, roasted nuts, and hints of pepper.

Roussanne wines are rich and often have a silky, exotic, oily texture. Enjoy them within the first few years of bottling or after they have been cellared for 15 to 20 years.
