Trignon Rhône 2019

A TRADITIONAL CÔTES DU RHÔNE: RICH IN FRUITS AND SPICES

Story

The wine
Since 2006, the Quiot Family, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and its products of character, owns the Château du Trignon in order to perpetuate it, while expanding it by 10 ha of Vacqueyras and few hectares of Beaume-de-Venise.
"Respectful of achievement but rich of our wine-maker knowledge, we have adopted this land whose singularity fits in with all our others properties, in the same line of tradition, quality and adaptation."
Location
The Rhône Valley has always been a privileged passage between the Mediterranean world and northern or Atlantic Europe. The very fruitful archaeological research carried out in the region, combined with historical studies, establish the Côtes du Rhône as one of the first wine regions in the world. From 125 BC, the Romans planted vines and built low walls protecting the terraces. They make this region one of the most beautiful in Narbonne Gaul. This notoriety will increase over the centuries and will take shape in 1937 with the consecration of the AOC Côtes du Rhône.

""Medium ruby garnet with purple highlights and a wide deep red rim. Floral bouquet with hibiscus notes and a hint of lingonberry, underlined with a delicate touch of white pepper and tangerine zest. Moderately structured, red cherry, silky texture, it offers freshness and very present lemony minerality in the retro-olfaction.”"
