Côtes du Rhône wine
The Côtes du Rhône vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in France and ranks second in terms of production volume after Bordeaux. This major wine region spans no less than six departments: Loire, Rhône, Ardèche, Drôme, Vaucluse, and Gard. The Côtes du Rhône appellation stands out for the diversity of its rocky soils (granite, sandy silica, limestone, etc.) and its grape varieties (Syrah, Grenache Noir, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier Blanc, etc.) which offer a very disparate mosaic of red, white or rosé wines with a strong character.
Côtes du Rhône Villages Signargues wine
The Côtes du Rhône Villages Signargue appellation concerns wines from the Rhône valley produced in the Gard in the villages of Domazan, Estézargues, Rochefort-du-Gard and Saze. The appellation cuvées are suitable only for making red wines. The grape varieties are made up of 40% Grenache associated with Syrah and / or Mourvèdre in a proportion of 25% minimum. The dry, hot, windy climate and the soils made up mainly of rocky slabs and pebbles reddened by iron oxide, give these sophisticated, racy and elegant wines their particular characteristics.
AOP Tavel wine
The wines of the Tavel appellation are produced in rosé only. They are made on the vineyards of the village of Tavel and Roquemaure in the Gard. Benefiting from the mild Mediterranean climate with generous sunshine as well as the prevailing wind, the mistral, the vineyard gives birth to the "kings of rosés", the Tavel.
On tasting, this exceptional wine reveals a nose with aromas of red fruits and a very noticeable fresh almond note. On the palate, we are seduced by this full-bodied, gourmet wine with a smooth, rounded texture.
