Les Celliers de Champsbilloux IGP Bouches de Rhone NV (6 x 750mL)

Description:

Bouches-du-Rhone is the IGP title for wines made in the administrative department of the same name on the southern coast of France. Bouches-du-Rhone lies within the Provence wine region, and is also home to the more-famous AOC regions Coteaux Aix-en-Provence and Les Baux de Provence. Because of the AOC’s restrictive laws and fierce loyalty to the traditional grape varieties, many of the IGP wines – which are made from a wider pool of grape varieties – are considered among the department’s best.

The boundaries of Bouches-du-Rhone are mostly geographical: the Durance river delimits the north, while the Rhone river (flowing south from the Rhone Valley wine region) makes up a portion of the western border. A swampy wetland area known as the Carmargue lies in the very southwestern corner of the department, on the western side of the river. The Mediterranean makes up the southern border.

The combination of climate and geography makes Bouches-du-Rhone well suited to viticulture and grapes have been grown here for thousands of years. While there is an array of different landscapes, from rocky limestone hills to vast plains, soils tend to be poor, free draining, and made up of anything from limestone clay to gravel and sandstone. A lack of water in the soils leads vines to produce more concentrated grapes, leading to more concentrated, flavourful wines.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

A delightfully dark glossy red with a nose of fresh fruits dominated by red fruits and spices. The palate is full, and round completed by well rounded smooth tannins.

Full bodied, and delicious with a great long finish. The intensity of the wine is a result of the region and its terroir.
