Notre Dame de Cousignac
Established in 1780 and located in the Ardèche region of France’s Rhône Valley, the estate name comes from a 6th century chapel dedicated to St. Vincent located on the grounds, as well as the nearby commune of Cousignac. There are a total of 60 estate hectares under vine divided between the Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Vivarais, IGP Ardèche, and Côtes du Rhône Village regions. Each of the vineyards has been cultivated by the Pommier family since 1780. Currently, Raphael Pommier represents the 7th generation and helps run the property. Notre Dame also sources fruit and has land holdings in Crozes-Hermitage, Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Luberon, Lirac, and Vacqueyras, which go into the estate’s various wines.
The estate also maintains a bed and breakfast for visitors to the Ardeche.

Notre Dame de Cousignac Cotes de Luberon Rouge $9.99
Made up of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 15% Mourvedre, this wine has a dark, ruby color with complex aromas of red and black berries along with savory spices. Full-bodied with fresh fruity nuances leading to smooth tannins across the long finish. After a 3-week temperature controlled maceration period in stainless steel tanks, full malolactic fermentation and additional aging for 3-6 months all takes place in the same vessels. Delicious now, but can be cellared and appreciated for 3-4 years, going forward.

Notre Dame de Cousignac Cotes de Luberon Blanc $9.99
This wine is a perfect balance between liveliness and elegance containing an assortment of beautiful floral and fruit aromas including grapefruit, ripe peach and acacia. Hints of honey and toast lead to a medium-bodied, textured white marked by zesty tropical fruit flavors. After undergoing a short, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine spends an additional 3 months aging in similar stainless steel tanks before being bottled unfiltered. Made from 70% Clairette, 25% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Bourboulenc.
