Presentation of the vineyard
Château de l'Engarran belongs to the Grill family since 5 generations. Today it's the two sisters, Constance Rerolle-Grill and Diane Losfelt Grill who control the wine production since 30 years. However, it all started already in 1632, when Henry d'Engarran, who had public responsibilities for the Languedoc region, bought the vineyard from the noble lords in Saint-Georges d'Orques which is a villages located just outside Montpellier in southern France. He decides to start the wine production in his own name. Later, Jean Vassal became the owner when he received the property as a wedding gift from his wife and he was the person who built the beautiful castle building as it looks today. Saint Georges d'Orques has a soil which is similar to the one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape with its red soil covered with round stones. The wines from here have long aging potential and always contain a certain freshness.
A bright red color. An original nose with hints of spices but also raspberry, black fruits and cloves. On the palate, this wine has aromas of red fruits accompanied by sweet tannins with a minty finish.
