Château Saint Estève Grand Réserve

An exceptional red wine from the Rhône Valley. Vibrant, dark red with an alert bouquet of red cherries and raspberry and a spicy, smoky aftertaste. Very drinkable, from the Massif d’Uchaux. Almost Burgundian in elegance.

Hand-harvested and fermented in underground concrete vats, resting for 18 months.

Marc Francais

The Saint Esteve wines are the result of two centuries of knowledge and experience. The vineyards are set in the heart of the garrigue of the Rhone Valley, with the herbs and flowers of this beautiful region playing their part in the make-up of the wines. The property is well away from major roads, and this helps the process of organic viticulture practised by Marc Francais.

 

There are just over a dozen producers in this appellation, which is set amongst hills where pines, oak, wild strawberries and herbs thrive. One of Marc's foremost principles is keeping yields low.This is how he maintains the quality of his production, and is the difference between a producer who wants plenty of wine to bring to market, and a producer who only wants an excellent wine to bring to market.

 

Marc Francais has this philosophy; it is not a secret,you can't hurry nature, you must let it do its own thing. In the years when the result is not as it should be, the answer is simple-he doesn't make the wine.

Chateau Saint Esteve d'Uchaux
