Located in the heart of a warm climate and the famous bed of pebble soils, the terraced vineyards of the Chateau give birth to an exceptional wine.
Built in the sixteenth century in Courthézon, its role has evolved continually. Originally used as a barn to shelter the food of the Prince of Orange, now the property of the Rey family, Chateau de la Grand Gardiole, has become one of the most influential Estates of the appellation.
Produced on a terroir of rolled pebbles and silicious soils, the grapes are harvested at their optimum maturity, crushed and destemed. The vinification is traditional with a long maceration (4to5 weeks).
