IGP Ardèche: Vignerons Ardéchois 'Les Terrasses' Blanc 2022

This terrific, crisp all-rounder has deservedly become one of our 'go to' wine recommendations for parties, receptions and events. It has a subtle bouquet of citrus fruit with hints of herbs and a zesty, dry, unoaked palate.

Tasting Notes

The 'house' red and white wines from Vignerons Ardéchois, both called 'Les Terrasses', are clean, bright and fruity and ideal for reliable everyday drinking. The white is a lovely, versatile wine from an unusual but effective blend of around two-thirds Sauvignon Blanc with the remainder Grenache Blanc that is bottled under screw-cap to preserve its youthful freshness.

Vignerons Ardéchois

The Vignerons Ardéchois Cave Co-opérative (also known as U.V.I.C.A - Union des Vignerons des Coteaux de l'Ardèche) has its roots in the late 1960s when the Presidents of 7 major Cave Co-opératives agreed a unified policy of modernisation, re-planting and marketing. Based in the town of Ruoms, 20 kilometres south of Aubenas this forward-thinking, modernist collective has done much to revive the fortunes of this ancient vine-area, which dates back to Roman times. Today the Vignerons Ardéchois co-operative represents some 2000 grape growers from 21 different smaller co-operatives. U.V.I.C.A is a terrific source of keenly-priced, well made single variety wines and accessible, fruit-driven blends.
