En Drôme Provençale : L’Enclave des Papes, un territoire d’exception


Hello! Let’s stop for a moment in this
exceptional wine-producing territory for this Rhône Valley Vineyards Moment
in Drôme Provençale. Although not exactly,
as you’ll see. Rhône Valley Vineyards present Rhône Valley Vineyards Moment The Papal Enclave in Drôme provençale:
an outstanding territory I am in Valréas. You might think that this village
is in the Drôme department but it is actually in the Vaucluse. Like Grillon, Richerenches
and Visan. Why? Because this is the Papal Enclave! Here we can still see some
papal boundary markers. These villages were purchased
by the Popes to extend their influence in the Kingdom of France. But less well-known
is that they were specifically chosen for the quality of their wines.
Why not indeed! And there’s a good reason for that. The Côtes du Rhône and Côtes
du Rhône Villages wines produced here benefit from the unique encounter
between clayey-limestone soils the altitude of the Alpine foothills, the Provencal sun and the Mistral wind. An unusual terroir
to produce wines that marry well with another fabulous regional
product – truffles! Richerenches, where I am now,
is the truffle capital. It has the biggest
winter truffle market in Europe. Before I go
I’d like to recommend lamb’s leg with a truffle aligot served
with a Côte du Rhône Villages Valréas. And why not try
a complete truffle meal with Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan. Utterly delicious! Produced by Chez Toi
