Tricastin Wine - Buy Wine from the Tricastin Region of France
Just when you begin to feel confident that you’ve got a reasonable grasp on French wine nomenclature the bureaucrats at the I.N.A.O get stuck in and chaos ensues. Their latest wheeze is to change the name of the Coteaux du Tricastin appellation whose wine makers have long been keen to distance themselves (commercially if not physically) from the local nuclear power plant. Combining the names of 2 of the more attractive local villages, they have come up with the catchy title of ‘Grignan les Adhémar’ – which trips off the tongue like radioactive waste.
No matter this ‘Le Grand Dèves’ bottling (which is still labeled as Tricastin at the time of going to press), from the über reliable Vignerons Ardéchois co-opérative in Ruoums, is a failsafe crowdpleaser.
