Raphael Pommier tends his family’s certified organic vineyards just across the river from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Situated on the right bank of the Rhone River, in the Ardeche region, this ancient domain lies across 2 appellations, Cotes du Rhone and Cotes du Vivarais. The chapel of Notre Dame de Cousignac was built in the 7th century and lies in the midst of the vineyards. The Pommier family, the current owners, bought the property in the Napoleonic era and cultivated wines and silk. After 7 generations, the vineyard is still active though the silk industry has disappeared.
The vineyards are located on marl-limestone hills from the Cretaceous period, when the Rhone River deposited thick layers of sand and pebbles. The vineyards are situated south-southeast, which allows the grapes to benefit from the Mediterranean and Rhodanian climates, ensuring perfect maturity. This combination of soil and climate, coupled with the quality of the selected grape varietals, result in full-bodied wines, noted for their originality and suavity.
