Côtes du Rhône Red

The Roux Family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate; a qualitative approach is also underway.
In 2006, the familly Quiot charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail, wish to perpetuate Château du Trignon.

"VINTAGE 2017 - 88 POINTS - Aromas of crushed roses and red berries lead to a palate that has a very light, lithe and juicy, red-fruit core. Drink now." [+]

"VINTAGE : 2016
Au nez cette cuvée dévoile des arômes soutenus de fruits rouges relevés d'épices. En bouche, elle propose ce même fruité intense et déploie une matière ronde et dense, étayée par des tanins fermes.

"Vintage 2015 - A blend of three grapes (Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah), this stunning red wine jumped out when tasted side by side with many higher priced 2015 Rhones. Dark and intense in color, this wine has a bright, clean finish that's very fruit forward and smooth from start to finish. Great now, this wine will likely get even better between now and 2023" [+]
