50 hectolitre /hectare
Located in the Gard, 10km south of Lirac, the tiny village of Estezargues (384 habitants) has been dedicated to producing wine for centuries. In 1965, eight winemakers decided to create "La Cave des Vignerons" in order to share their passion for winemaking. They decided to produce wines, which are representative of the local land, using local grape varieties while respecting the environment by following a restrained viticulture "lutte raisonnee" for nearly 50 years.
Vinify without sulphites at low temperature and they neither filtrate their wines nor fining them. The resulting wines are full of fruit and sun, thanks to the warm Mediterranean weather and low yield.
Monterotondo di Gavi area in chalky soils
Soft pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature, fresh and fruity with evident mineral notes.
The ideal wine with spaghetti vongole or fried fishes
100% Barbera d'Asti
Medium light bodied and smooth palate with ripe red and black fruit scents.
This wine is named after the vineyard owner, a lawyer. Strict, stern, and commanding, she has always been known as simply “the lawyer”.
The young, vivacious wine is almost comically at odds with its serious namesake.
Attractively fruited and nicely fragrant, the bouquet shows nectarine, rockmelon, fig and lemon peel characters with a touch of vanilla complexity. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, well supported by creamy texture and refreshing acidity, finishing smooth and lingering.
"A classic match with most white meats, rich seafood dishes, cheese and salads. Also highly enjoyable on its own!”
