||Vignerons Ardechois CDR
Les Vignerons Ardèchois is a cooperative in the southern Ardèche founded a century ago and established in 1967. They produce a vast range of regional and varietal wines, tapping into a pool of 1,500 small growers and across 14 wineries. This classic, organic certified Côtes du Rhône comes from 20 year-old vines growing in limestone based soils. As the region's average temperatures continue to climb, it requires more effort to produce wines with freshness and acidity, like the one we have here. Still carrying plenty of weight, we find pepper and thyme flavors and a spicy, herbal finish to be right at home with roasted or grilled meats and root vegetables or squash.
