At the bottom of the Dentelles de Montmirail, in the lovely village of Gigondas,
Claude Roux shares his passion of wine and terroir with his two children Isabelle and Julien.
Notre Dame des Pallières is a very old family estate whose name is coming from the middleage and more specifically from the
miraculous water source located at the edge of our estate. This source had the power to protect from the terrific plague.
By the past, people built a chappel where the Virgin appeared. It only remains a wall and a wood statue which can now be found ih the Gigondas church.
Our grandfather, Lucien Roux, officially gave it his name in 1935.
The vineyard covers thirty hectares and produces respectful famous appellations with regard to nature : Gigondas, Rasteau, Sablet, Lirac & Côtes du Rhône.
Our wine estate gathers typical grape varieties from the Rhône valley such as grenache, mourvedre & syrah in order to produce highly traditional vinified quality grapes.
Our vines find a strong anchor in a quaternary river alluvial soil under the Trignon valley favorable micro climate due to an exceptional sunshine.
Our great grandfather Jules ROUX planted the oldest vines we have in Gigondas.
In respect to nature and thanks to our authentic family history,
we are proud to welcome you in the cellar of our Notre Dame des Pallieres wine estate
to let you discover and taste our passion of wine.
