Côtes du Luberon Wine

Côtes du Luberon Wine

The Margan family's exquisite Château La Canorgue is located on the edge of the celebrated hill village of Bonnieux in the heart of the Luberon National Park which is a designated area of outstanding beauty. Indeed, the setting is so picturesque that the Château is frequently hired as a location for filming. The Margans also have a long track record of making outstanding and accessible organic wines that make a magnificent foil for Mediterranean cuisine. All that Provençal perfection might seem a bit de trop, but those are the breaks and the mitigating factor is that the wines have a strong sense of terroir and are wonderfully evocative of their magnificent surroundings.

Unusually, the family's 40 hectares have been farmed organically since patron Jean-Pierre Margan took the reins here in 1978. Happily, he was joined by his daughter Nathalie in 2000 and together they oversaw the installation of a smart subterranean winery. A winning combination of mature rootstock, low-intervention viticulture and fastidious vinification makes this a great single source for organically certified white, rosé and red wine.

The Château La Canorgue blanc is made from a combination of Grenache, Clairette, Roussanne Bourboulenc and Vermentino (known as Rolle in parts of Provence), that are harvested by hand and raised in stainless steel vats. The finished wine has an appealing wildflower and citrus bouquet supported by a sensuous stone-fruit palate with an elegant dry finish. A sibling rosé is blended from Syrah, Grenache Noir and Mourvèdre and has an attractive coral pink colour, ripe red berry scents and a wealth of delicate red fruit flavours offset by fresh acidity. Completing the range is a rich and rounded red made from Syrah, Grenache Noir and Carignan that has a wealth of wild herb aromas, an autumnal fruit palate replete with peppery spice and supple tannins. It makes a fine accompaniment to a gigot d'agneau replete with generous quantities of garlic and rosemary.
