Appellation
Côtes du Rhône Villages Laudun
    
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

"Laudun" was approved as a legal appellation in 1947 by the court of Uzès. This judgement recognized the right of the districts of Laudun, Saint-Victor-La-Coste, and Tresques to claim the appellation of Laudun within precise geographic limits and conforming to traditional customs. Later, a 1967 decree classified the wines of Laudun together with those of the Côtes du Rhône Villages and gave them a common name.

These three villages that make up the territory of the Laudun appellation benefit from geological characteristics that favor high-quality wine-growing. Extensive historical documentation attests to the antiquity of the region's wine cultivation, as well as to the high reputation of their wines.

 

Laudun, Saint-Victor-La-Coste, and Tresques, whose customs are influenced by those of neighboring Provence, have a common heritage: the Laudun appellation. This sun-drenched terrain, rich with the fragrances of the garrigues of Languedoc, offers you a range of well-balanced wines. The whites, in which the clairette and grenache grapes dominate, are characteristically fruity and refined. The red wines of scarlet hue have the intensity and the roundness of grenache, the floral bouquet of syrah, the aromatic length of mourvèdre. You can also find delightful rosés, to which cinsault grapes add a complementary dose of suppleness and elegance.

These are the estates that produce wines of the appellation Côtes du Rhône Villages Laudun.
