Domaine Chamfort covers 27 hectares at the base of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Vines are grown within four different AOC – Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet, Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret, Vacqueyras cru and Rasteau cru.
The vineyards are planted with the typical Rhône valley varietals including Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Marsanne. The vines grow on the hillsides or high plateaus, on soils presenting amazing diversity. Freshness is preserved and is a treasured characteristic of the Domaine Chamfort vines, for here in this Mediterranean area, summers are hot and dry. Winters are mild with relatively little rainfall. The Mistral wind can be very strong and blows moisture away, which means sunny blue skies.
The vines are managed with full respect for the integrity of the soil. Weeds are kept at bay through exclusively mechanical
intervention. Careful observation dictates what steps are to be taken and low-input, sustainable measures are applied.
This close, respectful relation to the soil produces wines which beautifully express their individual terroirs.
Powerful, elegant Vacqueyras wines, fleshy, velvety Rasteau, silky fine wines from Sablet, subtle fruity wines from Séguret.“Our wines beckon you on a journey. Each wine expresses the identity of its terroir in Sablet, Vacqueyras, Rasteau and Séguret,and share lovely freshness which they have in common.”Vasco Perdigão.
