Guide-Hachette.jpg1* Remarkable Wine "Fruit, pleasure, lightness, softness and roundness - is the simple but not simplistic ambition of this Grenache-Cinsault-Carignan blend. In the glass, everything is there: ripe fruit at will, a sprig of sweet spices, a spherical palate, harmonious to the end and very long." (2012 vintage)  
Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards (2011 vintage)

Although the Domain is famous for its red wine range, it also makes this sexy and aromatic white worth discovering. Original aromas of white flowers and honey (typical from the Roussanne grape), a fresh palate with a long finish: if you are keen on white Côtes du Rhône wines, this is a great pick.

Côtes du Rhône Villages Valreas is a specific upmarket local appellation, well known by true amateurs of the Rhône Valley. This cuvée is a deeply concentrated red offering beautiful aromas of black fruit and spices. As no oak barrel is used here, it is focused on fresh fruit and we love it. Definitely a top notch Côtes du Rhône Villages.
