CLOS DES AMERICAINS
30600 Vauvert - Languedoc-Roussillon
Mid-way between Nîmes and Montpellier, between the sea and the mountains, the estate and its 20 ha of vines overlook La Petite Camargue. Bruno François and Pierre Villebrun, both passionate about wine-making, have run the vineyard together since 2008. They practise sustainable and integrated vine growing methods and personally take care of the wine-making and ageing of the wines. The estate, located in the Rhône Valley, is classified as AOC Costières de Nîmes. The estate extends over 20 hectares with diverse varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Vermentino, Roussane, Marssane, Viognier and Tempranillo. The vineyard benefits from ideal climatic and geographical conditions: exceptional terroir, soil with rolled pebbles, the mistral wind, many hours of sun and also constant humidity generated by the Carmargue marshlands, enabling the production of characterful wines.
