Hand selected from the south of France

Citrus dominates the nose alongside white fruits, toasted oak and floral aromas with a enough of that oak on the palate to balance the tart freshness with some fatness.

Because of the vineyard's background of, well, being an island like 1,000 years ago, the wines can sometimes pick up a distinct marine aroma. Not iodine, but briny and fresh and salty.

Vineyard History

”Italian traditions in the South of France”

Chateau Ricardelle was mentioned as early as 1342, and again in 1696, as an official French property with vineyards as a listed property asset. Bruno Pellegrini, an established Italian winemaker, bought Chateau Ricardelle over 20 years ago. His wines blend his Italian heritage with the beauty of his new surroundings. Chateau Ricardelle is one of La Clape's best producers with wines that are on the cutting edge of the Languedoc's potential.
