Le Grapillon d’Or
Since 1970, the estate has been successfully managed by Bernard CHAUVET, joined 30 years ago by his daughter, Céline CHAUVET, who takes care of the winemaking and management of the estate.
In the heart of Provence, nestled at the foot of the famous Dentelles de Montmirail, our 15 hectare Gigondas vineyard is mainly located on the hillsides.
Our property also includes 2,60 hectares of Vacqueyras and 3.3 hectares of Vin de Pays, MERLOT CALADOC grapes.
All our wines are “Vegan” and come from a selection of small plots which give rise to wines of great concentration and suitable for aging.
