Cote du Rhone Domain Argelas Red 2016
Demazet Vignobles is the result of the union between the Terres d’Avignon cellars in Morières-Lès-Avignon and the Canteperdrix cellars in Mazan, combining the best features of both houses, key players in the area between the Rhône valley and the Mont Ventoux. The “mazet” is a Provençal term for a small house, characteristic of our region; the “Demazet” name reflects the marriage of the two houses, or “deux mazets”.
The two cellars joined together to become “Demazet Vignobles” on 1st July 2015, reflecting our shared values and deep-rooted commitment to quality.

The southernmost terroir on the left bank of the Rhône river, Côtes-du-Rhône covers an area from Fontaine-de-Vaucluse to the city of Avignon, along a hillside extending from the village of
Caumont-sur-Durance to Vedène.
The wine is a blend of Grenache and Syrah. The Argelas is a flower that looks like the broom flower. It is the Provençal name of the gorse.
"Sustained ruby colour, violet reflections. Pleasant nose, cherry, red berries, creamy note. Fresh mouth, full bodied, powerful, crisp fragrances loyal to the nose, Sun, some spices, pleasant purity of the fruit, final, firm, well elaborated blend."
