Cotes du Rhone Villages A.C.
Domaine de la Renjarde is owned by the Richard family, like Château La Nerthe (Châteanuef-du-Pape) and Prieuré de Montézargues(Tavel). Christian Voeux is the winemaker and manager of these 3 estates. Located in Serignan-du-Comtat, which is between Orange and Avignon, the 40+ year old vineyard combines all traditional grape varietals for the Southern Rhône Valley; Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre, Carignan, and Cinsault. The vines are planted in soils deep in calcareous sandstones well-sited on gently undulating slopes. Grapes are all machine harvested and are fermented in a combination of concrete and temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.

Winery Tasting Notes
Grenache Noir 65%, Syrah 17%, Cinsault 11%, Carignan 4% and Mourvedre 4%
A brilliant wine, with a deep colour and purple tints.
The nose is intense with notes of raspberry, cherry, red fruit jam and toast.
On the palate, lots of roundness, freshness, a nice firmness in the remaining fine tannins which are accompanied by notes of black fruits. The finish is long. Elegant tannins for a wine that has a nice ageing potential, but can also be appreciated now.
