The Domaine de la Présidente takes the best from time-honoured procedures for wine making and combines them with various new techniques to produce some magnificent, award-winning wines from the Côtes du Rhône and Chateauneuf du Pape. The Estate in Sainte Cecile-des-Vignes dates from the 17th century, and became national property after the French Revolution in 1789. The Domaine now comprises 120 ha. between Chateauneuf du Pape and Gigondas. The diversity of terroir in the vineyards offers the benefits of different geological strains and micro-climates allowing the wines to express all the characteristic aromas and powerful flavours of the region.
