Le Passage Côtes-du-Rhône hails from Sérignan-du-Comtat in the southern Rhône, eight miles from Châteauneuf-du-Pape en route to Gigondas. Vibrant ruby color with garnet accents showcase a lively, youthful wine. A round, silky mouthfeel and moderate alcohol highlight subtle yet rustic tannins. Raspberry and blueberry complete the finish.

The vineyard is surrounded by cooling forests, making for great acidity and a fresh style of Côtes-du-Rhône. The forests also provide protection from the strong Mistral winds. “Le Passage” refers to the passage between vineyard and universe, which has nourished the vines for more than 55 years.
