Grapes Varieties

Terroir & Vinification

The Roux Family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate; a qualitative approach is also underway. In 2006, the family Quiot charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail, wish to perpetuate Château du Trignon.

The soil is made of 3 types: Soft clay and limestone, Alluvium with chatterd stones and Sapphire glass and sandstone.

The winemaking process involves a partial de-stemming. The vatting time is 3 to 4 weeks. Malolactic fermentation and maturing in oak for a proportion.

Tasting Notes

It carries brilliant ruby colour as well as notes of toast, mocha, "guarrigue" and cloves. A fresh full-bodied, red wine with powerful attack and a complex structure, but also a delicate oaky finish.
