Les Vignerons d'Estezargues

While many of France’s co-ops go out of business or struggle to sell uninteresting plonk, the cave co-operative in Estezargues has for many years stood out as a co-op with an artisanal approach to winemaking making some of the best value wines in the Rhône Valley.

Things began to change in 1989 when Jean-Francois Nicq arrived to take over as winemaker. Rather than blend everything together, Jean-Francois decided to bottle the members’ production separately, highlighting the individual terroir of the 10 member estates. By the end of the 1990s, everything was being made in a hands-off, natural way - conscientious farming, no yeasts, no enzymes, no new oak and no SO2 before bottling.

The results were fantastic and following Jean-Francois’s departure to set up his own domaine (Les Foulards Rouges), his assistant Edouard Laffitte took over. When Edouard left to set up his own domaine (Le Bout du Monde) he was replaced by Denis Deschamps who has since overseen the continual improvement at this most innovative of co-ops.

Côtes-du-Rhone Les Oliviers 2021

A Côtes-du-Rhone with great character and plump fresh fruit, named after the cold wind that is funneled through the Rhone Valley from the North. Like its sister wine, the Cuvée des Galets, it is made with no intervention, wild yeast and no fining or filtration.
