Situated between the villages of Sérignan and Uchaux, close to Orange, the estate benefits from an exceptional terroir with a very large proportion of pebbles, the same as the Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroir. Château d’Aigueville is a single estate set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mont Ventoux and dentelles de Montmirail in the Southern Rhone.
With 37Ha of vines in the Massif d’Uchaux area surrounded by olive trees, lavender fields and oak trees, it is the largest producer within this premium appellation. Built on a plot which has a history stemming back 2,000 years, it is the custodian of local wine making heritage and outstanding biodiversity.
The majority of our vines are planted on a plateau with soils made up of clay-limestone and sandstone which are covered by alluvial pebbles. These soils are similar to the terroirs of nearby Châteauneuf du Pape. This proximity is defined in the profile of the wines. The rest of the vineyards are planted red clay soils which give our wines a more aromatic profile. The vines are drought-resistant and tend to produce very ripe and juicy wines.
