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 white wine is labelled as a vin de pays du Gard and is composed of Roussanne and Viognier, all harvested at a maximum of 30 hectolitres par hectare.
After traditional wine-making processes, the wine is aged in stainless steel tank for approximately 7 months.
It is a tightly structured, well balanced wine that is surprisingly ample and generous and retains a very fresh palate
At best served decanted prior to serving, this wine marries well to dishes of poultry or pork with a sauce, scallops or fine cheeses at the end of a meal.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“A blend of equal parts Viognier and Roussanne, a small percentage fermented in new wood, the very good Terre d’Argence Blanc, is surprisingly restrained compared to the Galets Dores. It offers abundant amounts of white currant, honeysuckle, and apricot notes in a medium-bodied, dry, refreshing style. 88/100.”
