Chateau Saint Jean

The Old vines,over 50 years, consitute 15% of the vineyard100% organic fertilisers and certified organic compost.Located in the Travaillan commune to the east of Orange, the vineyard of Chateau Saint Jean covers the vast plateau of the Plan de Dieu, reputed as a wine-growing area since Roman times. This estate belonged to the Sérignan lords until the revolution.Bought in 1946 by the MEFFRE family, the estate originally covered 60 hectares and was expanded to its current size by clearing and planting another 80 hectares. On this terraced, gravelly soil, the blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah produces generous red wines, suitable for ageing; the white wines from white Grenache, Clairette, Rousane and Bourboulenc are lively and fruity.
