Domaine Castan, Côtes-du-Rhône
The wines of Damien Castan's 42 hectare family estate in Domazan are heart-warming, rich and unpretentious, demonstrating just what good value can be found among the artisan growers of the southern Rhône. Located south-west of Avignon, near the Pont du Gard, Damien has cultivated the estate since 1990, and since 2012 has been certified organic. The Côtes-du-Rhône is a blend of grenache, syrah and carignan, while the Villages wine is an equal-parts blend of grenache, syrah and meaty mourvedre, which ripens at this extreme southerly end of the Rhône valley.
