Les Vignerons d’Estezargues

Created in 1965, this structure did not stand out from other volume-based coopérative of the region. Jean-Francois Nick was the first one to establish an individual cuvée policy, which translates the work and the typicity of each grower’s land in 1995. In 1997-1998, they shifted to a natural and ethical approach to winegrowing and winemaking and this was followed by immediate success on the export-market. Denis Deschamp, the winemaker now in charge of the ten vignerons and their domaine continues to work with this approach: No external yeasts, no filtration, no fining, no enzymes, no SO2 on the grapes at harvest (or during the vinification), only a little bit for bottling. They are also part of a group promoting “reasoned agriculture” in the region, pushing for minimal use of chemicals in the vineyards. This is greatly helped by the dry and windy climate. Democratic Vin Naturel!


Vin de Table- “Le Terroir” 2018

Vineyard: Sourced from parcels in and around the A.O.C Côtes du Rhône.

Grape variety: grenache then cinsault, and carignan and sometimes syrah up to 20% when the vintage is harvested late.

Terroir: Deep marine clay formation from the tertiary.

Winemaking: Maceration for 10 to 15 days at relatively low temperature (18-20c). This cuvée is normally only sold in bag-in-box for bars and bistros, but the vignerons do a special bottling for Vleck!
