On a magnificent terroir of rolled pebbles and red clay located in the north of the town of Courthézon, just a stone's throw from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Close to Beaucastel's Coudoulet site.
Between tapenade and blackcurrant, the cuvée Terre d'Argile offers a concentrate of aromas. Dense and fleshy, the mouth reveals deep and smooth notes of ripe fruit, and a lingering finish.
