Les Vignerons d’Estézargues
This small co-operative, in a little village in the Gard, just west of Avignon, is now getting more attention here because oenologist Denis Deschamps makes "natural" wines, i.e. without adding any sulphur (or anything else) during winemaking.
We find this mildly amusing: we have been quietly shipping decent volumes of these delicious, forward-fruited, unoaked and unfiltered wines for over a decade, and it’s clear you have been enjoying their satisfying density and mouthfeel. Wines from Estézagues are hugely admired within France. Just ten vignerons participate in this co-op, sharing grapes to make some wines and also bottling wines from their own land under their own estate names.
