CHARACTERISTICS : The Vieux Clocher Ventoux Rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault et Carignan.

The mouth is harmonious, flirting between freshness, depth and finesse.
Between Vienne and Avignon, on the banks of the majestic Rhône River are the Côtes du Rhône. Mainly derived from the Plan de Dieu terroir, the vines thrive under the sun and the mistral, producing wines with a wealth of colors, fragrances and flavors ...
CHARACTERISTICS: A powerful wild flowers bouquet assorted with delicate citrus touches graces the nose. In mouth it is immediately frank and fruity while full bodied and generous.
Nestled at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, this provençal scrubland is swamped by sunlight and swept by the Mistral. It has produced richly concentrated grapes since the14th Century. These fruity and powerful wines are a symphony of flavors and fragrances raised to the prestigious level of Cru des Côtes du Rhône since 1990.
CHARACTERISTICS: Produced from vines growing on a stony plateau, the Vacqueyras Vieux Clocher red Classic is characterized by its power, virility and the finesse of its aromas. As soon as its first year, this wine will marvel you with its sumptuous deep purple color with mauve highlights and its powerful fruity fragrances sprinkled with spice. All the intensity of the nose may be found in mouth, on a background structured by healthy tannins full of masculinity and packed in a full body. The finish is long and opens some late pepper touches that define its specificity.
Viniculture since 1717: In 1717, the Count François de Castellanne, de Lauris, de Vassadel, de Gérard, Chevalier marquis of Ampuis, de Lagneroux, Vacqueyras and its territories universal and direct landlord, gave away a vineyard to Pierre Bovis, an ancestor of the Arnoux family. We have since then, kept Vine and Wine tradition in our family, and today the vineyard covers 40 hectares.
1936, a new expansion: Until 1936, we only vinified wines produced from our 24 hectares vineyard. But from that date, because of the growing renown of out wines and facing their subsequent ever increasing demand, we had to start purchasing other growers vendanges. This has allowed us to satisfy our customers who were looking for a complete selection of Rhône Valley wines.
It is Aimé Arnoux who launched this new growth. Maison Arnoux has since been directed by his two sons: Jean-Maris and Régis. Today the dynasty is perpetuated with Marc and Jean-François, Jean-Marie's sons, both heirs of the family's savoir-faire.
