This was one of the first estates in this part of France to bottle its own wines in the 1960s. The extensive, organically certified vineyards border on the Massif d'Uchaux, a large and heavily wooded range of hills that border the left bank of the Rhône north of Orange.
Constant cool breezes create a definite microclimate here and perfect conditions for ripening grapes, especially grenache and syrah. A few years ago this was officially recognised with the creation of a new villages appellation, Massif d'Uchaux. Saint-Estève reserve this for their top wines.
Light to mid purplish crimson. Smells of summer with an uncanny echo of Cabernet Franc on the nose – that leafy dark-fruit scent. Light-bodied, scented on the palate too – a great achievement to have made ...Light to mid purplish crimson. Smells of summer with an uncanny echo of Cabernet Franc on the nose – that leafy dark-fruit scent. Light-bodied, scented on the palate too – a great achievement to have made such a fresh and fragrant summer red in this part of the world. Even though it is light and fresh, it is not simple, with a depth of fruit and a touch of spice on the finish. Good value.
