Prieuré de Montézargues
More than a rosé, a rosé cru.
As early as 1199, Prieuré de Montézargues was a fully functioning monastery with the monks having already established a water source and a functioning water mill. The property covers eighty-four acres, deep in a corner of Provence, sheltered from the Mistral winds by the Montagne Noire mountain range area with its mix of hundred year-old strawberry trees, evergreen oaks and aleppo pines. The original stone monastery buildings blend seamlessly into the landscape of gard stones and pebbles, forming a micro-terroir and the unique personality of the Montézargues estate vineyards. Prieuré de Montézargues is owned by the Richard family like Château La Nerthe (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) and Domaine de La Renjarde (Côtes du Rhône Villages). Ralph Garcin is the winemaker and manager of all three estates.
