Château de Valcombe Tradition Blanc 2022
|Costières de Nîmes, France
Château de Valcombe, family owned since 1749, is the southernmost estate in the Costières de Nîmes. Close to the Mediterranean Sea and planted on soils boasting the highest concentration of limestone in the region, the wines of Château de Valcombe are refined, concentrated and display exuberant freshness.
Following the Second World War, the estate was inherited by Charles Ricome, who replanted most of the vineyards and was among the first to plant Syrah in the appellation.
In 2007, Château de Valcombe was invited by the former French President, Jacques Chirac, to supply wine to the Élysée Palace. This is the first time that a Southern France winery has received such an honor. It shows that Château de Valcombe has been recognized in France.
Light gold color. Floral nose. On the palate, very mineral, a full-bodied, fleshy and fragrant wine. Long and very fresh finish, with citrus notes.
