Vieilles Vignes CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE

AOC CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE CONTROLÉE - RED
 
Our Vieilles Vignes cuvée is made with grapes from specially selected plots: Charbonnières, planted in 1900, on the northern foothill of La Crau Plateau: 2.30 ha of Grenache and a few other vines, including some Mourvèdre. Les Esqueirons, planted in 1949, on the western foothill of the castle: 1 ha of Grenache.

WINEMAKING: Our Vieilles Vignes cuvée comes from two plots: Charbonnières: 2.32 ha planted with Grenache, but with a few other vines, including some Mourvèdre. It is located on the northern foothill of La Crau Plateau. According to the vineyard registry, the year of planting was 1900. Les Esqueirons: this 1.13 ha plot is behind the castle, on the west slope of the village hill, in the locality of Les Esqueirons. Both plots are harvested at the same time. The crop is first sorted at the vine, then taken to the cellar in 50 kg crates. It proceeds onto the sorting table, before being destemmed and crushed. No yeasts are added; we work with native yeasts. Maceration, with temperature control and daily pumping-over, lasts at least four weeks before pressing. After malolactic fermentations, the wine is racked off and then matured, generally in foudres or concrete vats.
CULTIVATION METHOD: Organic (ECOCERT certified)
GRAPES: Grenache 98% (Charbonnières) and 100% (Les Esqueirons).
TERROIR: Colluvium (slope deposits) and safres (fine-grained sand) for Charbonnières. Colluvium and clay for Les Esqueirons.

Raison de Loup VIN DE FRANCE

WHITE 

A low-profile cuvée in terms of quanity (only 800 bottles a year), our white Vin de France comes from a plot of Clairette Rose in the municipality of Saint Laurent des Arbres.

WINEMAKING: This variety is the pink version of Clairette Blanche; they have similar traits and qualities, except for the colour of the ripe berry skins, which are pink instead of white! We take the same care with our Vin de France as with our other wines: we grow the grapes organically, work the soil, hand pick the grapes in 50 kg crates, and sort them twice, at vine and in cellar.
CULTIVATION METHOD: Organic (ECOCERT certified) since 1991
GRAPES: Clairette rose.
TERROIR: Clay and limestone.

CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE

AOC CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE CONTROLÉE - WHITE

About 6% of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation’s output is white wine; and the same is true of Domaine de Marcoux. The authorised varieties are: Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Picpoul, Clairette and Picardan.

WINEMAKING: Our white Châteauneuf-du-Pape mainly comes from two plots: 0.50 ha of Roussanne in the Les Esqueirons locality, planted in 1987. This plot is on the west-facing slope of the village hill. 0.35 ha of Bourboulenc in the locality of Les Bousquets, also on the west-facing slope of the village hill. In 2020, a third plot of Clairette (approx. 20 ares) will enter production. We also have a vine Clairette vines and old Grenache Blanc vines scattered in other plots; and which, in some years, contribute to the blend. The grapes are hand picked, in 50 kg crates, with great care being taken not to squash the grapes. The bunches are pressed, and the must is placed in stainless-steel vats. Débourbage is performed : this consists of removing the solid debris of the pulp, soil particles, etc). Finally, alcoholic fermentation can begin, with the temperature kept around 17°C. When this is over, we rack off the coarse lees and the wine is matured on fine lees in stainless-steel vats and demi-muids. Our white wines do not undergo malolactic fermentation. And they are bottled about seven months later.
CULTIVATION METHOD: Organic (ECOCERT certified)
GRAPES: 69% Roussanne, 29% Bourboulence, 2% Clairette and Grenache Blanc.
TERROIR: Clay, colluvium, Cretaceous limestone of the Barremian age.

Lorentine LIRAC

LIRAC CONTRÔLÉE - RED

The estate is in Saint Laurent des Arbres on the west bank of the Rhône, in the heart of the AOC Lirac: seven hectares, almost in a single expanse, amid the garrigue in the coomb of Balouvière.

The grapes are then destemmed, crushed and cooled for pre-fermentation maceration. The vinification method is similar to that used for our Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines: destemming, no yeast addition, temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation and daily pumping-over. The wine is matured in concrete vats and foudres. Bottling generally takes place 18 months after harvest.
CULTIVATION METHOD: Organic (ECOCERT certified) since 2010
GRAPES: Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah.

Raison de Loup VIN DE FRANCE

RED

Our red Vin de France comes from two Rhône-side plots. For us, it’s very simple: they are called Grand Rhône and Petit Rhône!

WINEMAKING: This tongue of land between river and pebbles is conducive to producing Vin de France, formerly known as Vin de Table… A fresh, unassuming but pleasurable wine… We take the same care with our Vin de France as with our other wines: we grow the grapes organically, work the soil, hand pick the grapes in 50 kg crates, and sort them twice, at vine and in cellar. The grapes are destemmed and crushed; we only use native yeasts, and conduct daily pumping-over. The wine is matured in concrete vats, then typically bottled six months after harvest.
CULTIVATION METHOD: Organic (ECOCERT certified) since 1991
GRAPES: Grenache, Syrah and Caladoc.
TERROIR: Alluvium and silt.

CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE

AOC CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE CONTROLÉE - RED

We have 13 plots in various districts of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, and thus with various types of soil.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are picked by hand; ripeness varies between varieties and districts. They are first sorted at the vine, then transferred quickly to the cellar in 50 kg crates. Once in the cellar, the crop passes onto the sorting table; then is destemmed, crushed and cooled. No yeast is added; we only work with native yeasts. During alcoholic fermentation, we control the temperature and perform daily pumping-over. Maceration lasts 4-5 weeks. The wine is matured for about 18 months, chiefly in concrete vats and several foudres or 350-litre barrels.
CULTIVATION METHOD: Organic (ECOCERT certified)
GRAPES: The varietal proportions vary from year to year, but are generally: 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 7% Syrah and 3% Cinsault.
TERROIR: Quartzite pebbles, clays, red sandstone, colluvium, Cretaceous limestone of the Barremian age.

About us

Company details

THE FAMILY
In the county archives in Avignon, there is a register dating from 1344. It lists all those who must pay a tax to their master: the Bishop of Avignon.

Even back then, the name Armani features five times. Their forenames? Pierre, Raymond, Bernard, Isnard and Durant.
The Armani name would evolve over time, becoming Armanie, then Armanier and finally Armenier. These spellings are found in the municipal and family archives.
We can assert, without complete certainty, that these five Armenier families, who were settled in Châteauneuf in 1344 and already owned some property, had already been there a long time… We can even dare to dream, and suggest that the Armeniers were there when the village was founded – and why not!
What is certain, though, is that we are one of the oldest families in the village.

The same is true on our mother’s side. Jacqueline Coulon, our mother, is also descended from an old Châteauneuf bloodline, the Jouffron family: the oldest document in our possession, a marriage deed, is dated 4 November 1691. And so, through the generations, our estate has been unravelled and reassembled with each wedding and inheritance…
 
In 1995, at a time when it was still not straightforward for women to work in a winery, Sophie and Catherine Armenier took over running Domaine de Marcoux.
Catherine chiefly managed the vines, while Sophie led the winemaking side.
The sisters wholly devoted themselves to the estate and to making quality wines.
In 2014, Sophie’s son Vincent Estevenin took his place alongside his mother and aunt, bringing his youth, passion and skills to the winery.
In 2019, Catherine, aspiring to a quieter life, retired!
