Château d’Aigueville – Massif d’Uchaux

 

 

Designation Côtes du Rhône Villages
Vineyard Size approx. 10 ha.
Soil type Very rocky chalky soils. The natural weathering of the bedrocks produces sandstone soils combined with sand-lime elements. The moderate altitude of the Massif d’Uchaux and the high calorific value of the soils, due to the numerous pebbles are the key factors of a low production and a slow and regular maturation.
Vine varieties Grenache 50 % Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault 50 %
