Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Made in the Costieres de Nimes region from a blend of Grenache and Syrah, this is ripe and rich with smooth raspberry and redcurrant fruits - spice too.
Rhone-like in character, this is one to savour with a plate piled with sausages or stew.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year
A property steeped in history situated 15km to the south of Nimes. 40 hectares of vines surround the historic chateau which dates back to the 18th century. Owned by the Roque family who have made wine here for three generations, it was a favoured place of relaxation for King Louis XV of France. The grapes grown here reflect the typical Costieres de Nimes varieties and include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Costieres de Nimes in the South of France has a Mediterranean climate which provides hot, dry summers and is famed for the Mistral, a very strong and cold north wind which helps to cool the vines and is beneficial to the development of healthy grapes. The soil is a mix of calcium and sandy loam, which provides excellent drainage and heat retention.
