Terroirs & Wines
Guided by their expertise and enthusiasm, our artisan winegrowers make the most of their outstanding terroir to produce wines of character: crus from Vacqueyras to Gigondas. Discover delicious Rhone Valley wines from the Vignerons de Caractère.
Vacqueyras, a cru with balance and finesse from plateau vineyards :
Vacqueyras' terroir consists of a patchwork of numerous (frequently small) plots scattered throughout the appellation. Vacqueyras is one of the rare Rhone Valley crus entitled to all three colours (red, white, and rosé wines).
The red wines are generous, elegant, and complex. They usually have red and black fruit aromas, but also display typically spicy Provençal nuances and liquorice overtones on the finish.
They can be enjoyed young, to make the most of the red fruit overtones, or aged to reveal leather notes on the nose and candied fruit flavours on the palate.
Gigondas, a colorfull cru...
This unique appellation unique nestled at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail produces some marvellous wines. The composition of the soil is like no other in the Rhone Valley.
Gigondas wines have a generous bouquet of sun-ripened fruit. The wines are rich, balanced, and very elegant. The nose shows hints of garrigue and thyme. Over time, the fruitiness gives way to musky nuances of forest floor and truffles.
Wines from this exceptional terroir have a finesse rare in the Rhone Valley, and delight people who seek them out.
