The name ‘Terre d’Argence’ refers to a specific area within a larger terroir named Argence, which is scattered with olive and alder trees whose leaves give a particular silvery hue in the strong Provencal daylight. Situated between the Rhone River and the Carmague, this terroir was once a part of the bishopric of Arles between XI and XIII centuries.
This organic red wine is predominately Syrah based from vines that are over 45 years old and is complemented by old vine Grenache.
Delicate flavour with fine, soft tannins this wine extends a long, silky finish. Very concentrated and complex nose, notes of black fruits and wild herbs of the garrigue underlie a delicate and fine mineral structure.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“The 2007 Terre d’Argence, an unfiltered blend of 90 % Syrah and 10% Grenache, possesses rich, ripe blackberry fruit notes intermixed with liquorice and garrigue characteristics. Opulent, even flamboyant, this stunning 2007 should drink nicely for 5-6 years.” – The Wine Advocate.
