Our wines, the fruit of our labor and passion...
Domaine Pélaquié, located in the southern part of the ‘Côtes-du-Rhône’ produces the full range of wines of the right bank of the Rhône. The estate stretches on 100 hectares, whose the main part is surrounding the family house located in Saint-Victor-La-Coste in the Gard Region.
Côtes du Rhône
Facing Avignon, on the right bank of the Rhone, dominated by the Mediterranean climate, the vineyard is very sunny thanks to the mistral wind-king. On limestone soils, where lie the rounded stone, into microclimates, live diverse grape varieties that allow many blends from which arise a range of distinctive wines. The river-king, the wind-king sung by poets, Mediterranean sun, the know-how of the winemakers create a generous wine, shimmering, with a rich bouquet of aromas.
Cuvée Luc Pélaquié
The wines "Luc Pélaquié" come from the oldest vines of our vineyard. The plot selection, low yields and a specific aging ensure quality and authenticity of these. The wine is aged in oak barrels of 500 liters of 3 wines (on fine lees in the case of Lirac Blanc). Finally, they have a longer keeping time. Atypical and bold wines that combine the best of traditional knowledge and expression of our old vines.
Present since Roman times, the vineyard of Laudun, covering three villages, Laudun, Saint Victor la Coste and Tresques, were famous in the 17th century. The vines spill from rocky slopes onto the picturesque river plains in between the villages.
