The Reserve de L'Abbe is a selection of our best fruity, light wines from the right bank of the Rhone. The careful combination of two terroirs where wine has been grown for many centuries gives the wine its rich, balanced flavour. The Saint-Victor La Coste terroir has sandy soils and pebbly plains, giving fruity, fleshy wines. The south-facing, gravelly, calcareous terraces of the Saint-Gervais terroir add freshness and a long finish. The Reserve de L'Abbe carries on the tradition of Cotes du Rhone wines, and will delight anyone looking for a supple, fruity young quaffing wine.
