Château Saint Estève d'Uchaux
The estate, owned by the Monier Saint Esteve family since 1809, centered around a beautiful architectural ensemble formed in the late eighteenth century, is surrounded by vineyards and wooded hills backed the Uchaux Massif. The estate includes 230 hectares in one piece including 43 hectares of vines and 24 hectares of various crops.
Produced by winemaker Marc Thomas who is meticulous in using the different appropriate vinification methods available for each different parcel of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan vines. A lovely fruit packed wine.
Enjoy this wine with duck burgers and salad.
A wine of great breeding and complexity, a blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah, Carignan and a little Mourvedre, all hand picked using the same family team year after year. Fermented on skins in tank with an extended maceration to capture the sweetness and ripe tannins - with a small proportion benefiting from some wood contact, as well as numerous pump-overs prior to blending together and ageing further in tank before filtration and bottling.
