DEMAZET VIGNOBLES

LVT  2015 wh 2015 rosé  2016 r This is the same business as TERRES D'AVIGNON. The wines are sound, especially given the scale of the operation - 180,000 bottles of the Côtes du Rhône Réserve des Armoiries red, for instance.

Demazet is the result of the fusion in July 2015 of two Co-operatives, that of Terres d’Avignon centred at Morières-lès-Avignon and featuring Gadagne Côtes du Rhône Villages as the standard bearer at the top of the range, and that of Les Vignerons de Mazan, a good village in Ventoux. The Gadagne Côtes du Rhône Villages Château Quilex red is a good, lusty wine from its hot vineyards, and gives genuine drinking. The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Réserve des Armoiries Comte de Galléan red was a **** STGT wine that captured its sense of place very well.

245 Co-operateurs work 1,400 hectares. Production runs at around 71,000 hl. Bottling of the Ventoux is at Morières-lès-Avignon. Côtes du Rhône Villages, Côtes du Rhône and IGP wines are made. The Cante Perdrix Ventoux white is a little better than the red.
