ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

At the bottom of the Dentelles de Montmirail, in the lovely village of Gigondas, Claude Roux shares his passion of wine and terroir with his two children Isabelle and Julien. Notre Dame des Pallières is a very old family estate with lineage from the middle ages and derives its name from the miraculous water source located at the edge of the estate. This source is noted to have had the power to protect from the effects of the plague. Its history also includes a chapel where the Virgin Mary was said to have appeared. Today all that remains is a wall and a wood statue which can now be found in the Gigondas church. Their grandfather, Lucien Roux, officially gave it his name in 1935.

The vineyard covers thirty hectares and produces famous appellations respectful to nature : Gigondas, Rasteau, Sablet, Lirac & Côtes du Rhône. The estate gathers typical grape varieties from the Rhône Valley, such as Grenache, Mourvèdre & Syrah in order to produce highly traditional wines.
