Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 50% Grenache Blanc, 50% Roussanne

The color is a pale lemon with green reflections. The bouquet displays mineral notes combined with intense aromas of exotic fruit and white flowers. It's round Taste Round and fresh, with a good balance of fruit, acidity and alcohol.

Located in France's southern Rhône Valley, Château Lamargue (Lah-Marg) comprises 210 acres of vineyard in the up-and-coming Costières de Nîmes appellation. The estate boasts a showcase winery equipped with the most advanced winemaking technology as well as new French and American oak barriques. Investment to date stands at over $12 million dollars.

My Notes:

About Chateau Lamargue:

Vines have been grown and wines made in the Costières de Nîmes for at least 2,000 years. Only recently, however, have progressive young winemakers seized on the area's potential for producing outstanding wines of exceptional personality and appeal. Consequently, the Costières de Nîmes offers discerning wine lovers some of the best values available in terms of Rhône Valley wines.

Château Lamargue in this up-and-coming appellation in France's southern Rhône Valley was established in 1999. The property, which was purchased in 2001 by Campari, includes 85 hectares (210 acres) of vineyards planted in an array of grape varieties, notably Syrah.

Chateau Lamargue boasts a new showcase winery equipped with the most advanced winemaking technology. The estate's vineyards have undergone a similarly thorough rehabilitation, as have Lamargue's aging cellars (chais), which are now replete with all-new French and American oak barriques.
