Terre d’Argence

Bouteille Terre d'Argence rouge

The substance that combines length and depth

The vineyard is situated on the terroir of La Terre d’Argence that lies between the Rhône and Camargue. It has had a Provençal heritage for one thousand years: it was a part of the diocese of Arles from the 11th to the 19th century. Its name is linked to the silvery flashes of the leaves of the alder and olive trees, fluttering in the Mistral wind, as well as to the richness of the wine.
It is a successful combination of the Rhône varieties and the terroir that allows a perfect balance for the maturation of the grape.
Terre d’Argence Rouge expresses the balance between substance and length. The structure, which is very present but harmonious, highlights the natural elegance of our Syrah. The fruit, the rich aromas and the depth of the wine are all pushed to the fore.

The selection of old Syrah complemented by Grenache

With a touch of Mourvèdre or Carignan -Depending on the vintage-.
Ageing the wine between 18 and 24 months principally takes place in vats in order to preserve all the aromas of the fruit and the mark of the terroir.
Its low yield (35 -40 hectolitre per hectare) gives the wine its remarkable concentration.
One third of the wine goes into the cask, to age the most structured clos.
Estate certified in Organic Agriculture since the 2015 vintage.
