An elegant Viognier with hints of orange marmalade, apricot and ripe tropical fruits. Precise, crisp and balanced on the palate, with a roundness of generously structured fruit and a long, elegant finish.

Property Information

The Vineyard is situated 15 km South of Nîmes near the village of Manduel, right in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ Costières de Nîmes. It’s principal characteristic is it’s soil formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been rolled by many overflows of the Rhône river thousands of years ago..

These pebbles permits the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and thanks to this natural soil filter, the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth.

The vines also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which bring the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity in early September.

The average age of the vineyard is about 25 years. The main varieties of grape are Syrah and Grenache for the reds and rosés and White Grenache, Roussane and Viognier for the whites, as are the most renowned vineyards in the Rhône Valley.
