Product Description

Rocce Maure Tour de L'HersThis well made, Gold Medal winning, Cotes du Rhone hails from Les Vignerons de Roquemaure in the heart of the southern Rhone Valley. These ancient vineyards gave birth to the term ‘Cotes du Rhone’ in 1737. Roquemaure, with its historic castle and port, was their commercial cradle. A royal decree specified that no wine or harvested grapes could be brought into Roquemaure from outside the area and the letters CDR (Cotes du Rhone) were branded by hot iron into the Roquemaure wine barrels to mark their quality. The local cooperative, Les Vignerons de Roquemaure, named their special cuvee 1737 as it represents the quintessence of the Cotes du Rhone and honours this auspicious year.

Cuvee 1737 and foodLes Vignerons de Roquemaure’s vineyards also cover Laudun in the Cotes du Rhone Villages AOC as well as Lirac and Tavel. They are planted with traditional grape varieties and the soul of their great wines comes from old plots established by their grandparents and those before them. Cuvee 1737, being both vibrant and fruity, pairs well with rich dark meats: liver, steak, duck, lamb and pigeon. It’s great with sausages, salamis and prosciutto as well as dishes made with capons, green peppers or olives and hard cheeses.
