Domaine de l’Espigouette
«We believe that it takes rich, concentrated and balanced grapes to make a great wine.»
Domaine de l'Espigouette has been a family estate since 1921, currently managed by Bernard, Julien and Émilien Latour in organic farming. It is located on the Appellations of Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Rasteau, Plan de Dieu and Côtes-du-Rhône. We are attentive to our vineyard and work each plot of land individually.
The diversity of terroirs brings a lot of complexity to our wines: while the pebbles yield rich and smooth wines, the sandy and clayey soils provide them elegance, finesse and depth.
The vineyards are 45 years old as an average, which also plays a major role in the quality and concentration of the grapes.
The vines are managed in order to obtain the best maturity and concentration possible: the grapes are carefully sorted before harvesting and then mechanically harvested.
