Our Wines

A rich and
diversified terroir

Two regions, the Vaucluse and the Drôme, three appellations.
Four towns including Visan are located in the Drôme region under the name “Enclave des Papes”. The Clos du Père Clément is in the town of Visan.

Therefor, the vines of the estate are established upon the Vaucluse and the Drôme regions, this important detail allows the production of wines from three different appellations:
• AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan
• AOC Côtes du Rhône
• IGP Drôme

This diversity of terroirs is the source of the richness of Clos du Père Clément.

A precious
treasure…

The black Grenache is one of our most prized treasure. It is a generous and gourmet grape variety with numerous tasting assets. Among them is the fact that while aging, its tannins melt and reveal fruity and spicy aromas.

The Syrah is also a grape variety that has a special place in our work. This low yielding, rare, and precious grape variety has a special typicity that we value in our wines. Spicy, floral, and fruity, it is expressed fully in our ageing wines. it reveals all its strength, structure, and style in our Cuvée Saint Clément.
