WINEMAKER NOTES | Located in the Meridional part of the Côtes du Rhône, just in front of Châteauneuf du Pape, this old estate has been in the same family for 6 generations. Today, Marc Serguier, his wife and his son are working all together on the vineyard. Marc has a dream: to get a vineyard in Chateauneuf du Pape one day… His estate is facing that wonderful appellation and even if Domaine des BOUZONS is producing only Côtes du Rhône wines, they are elaborated as if they
were Chateauneuf du Pape wines. Stretching along the banks of the Rhône river in the Gard, the Domaine des Bouzons is centered on the traditional farmhouse built in the 17th century by an ancestor, on the spot where, four hundred years ago, a spring of water flowed, and still flows today. The vineyard is planted with vines that in some cases, are more than 50 years old. It is situated on hillsides and overlooks the Rhône valley.
