Le Grand Valmal Cotes du Rhone BLANC

Only about 8% of the Rhone production is white!
Here is an outstanding example of a great white Rhone!

We represent three generations of wine estate owners in the south of France. Our soil is mostly sand-clay, mixed with old river stones from the Ice-age, often mixed with eroded soil coming from the garrigue covered hills.  This region benefits from the largest number of sunshine hours in France, important for the aroma development, photosynthesis, and maturing process. The north wind, called « Mistral », blows up to 100 days a year, and keeps the vines clean and healthy. Our aim is for the wine to be an expression of the grape and of the terroir. Our wines are fruit driven, with roundness , some spices, complexity and long finish.
