Producer: Les Terres du Roy
"Roy' is the old spelling for 'roi' in French and the name Terres du Roy means 'lands of the king'. The vineyards are situated on land which was once two lakes, Rochefort and Pujaut. The lakes were artificially drained in 1612 to provide feuding parties with more land for agricultural use.
Today the vineyards are planted on soils covered with pebbles located on hills overlooking the Pujaut plain, seven kilometres north of Avignon. The vines are on average 40 years old and the vineyards are managed sustainably.
The Côtes du Rhône is vinified in a modern winery that was renovated in 2001. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvèdre with no oak influence. It is ripe, full of black and red berried fruit and is supple and balanced with crisp acidity."

The vineyards are planted on soils covered with pebbles located on hills overlooking the Pujaut plain, seven kilometres north of Avignon. The vines are on average 40 years old and the vineyards are managed sustainably. As the vineyards are located in the Southern Rhone, the wines here are riper and richer with a little more body.
The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and has no oak influence, resulting in a wine with intense primary fruit aromas and vibrancy.
This Côtes du Rhône has an enticing nose that is ripe and concentrated, full of black and red berry fruit. It is supple, rich yet balanced with crisp acidity. It is delightful to drink now, on its own or paired with charcuterie, lamb or beef dishes.
