Winery information:

The vineyard was initially planted by the Templiers, a religious order, in the 12th century. It expanded in the 14th century under the protection of the popes during their stay in Avignon. The strict rules and laws governing this appellation have become the base for the French laws concerning  the "appellation contrôlée" wines.

Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury gained an international reputation very quickly. Thomas Jefferson's visit in 1787 was its first contact with the United States.

During the 1890s, Gustave Vidal married a daughter of the Fleury family. Thanks to her dowry, they replanted the vineyard following the phylloxera outbreak.  As of the 1920s, the House took an interest in other wine-growing regions in the Rhone Valley.  The Appellation was created in 1936.

Tasting Note:

Pale yellow in colour. The nose is full of both fresh (apricot, melon) and dry (Almond). Some floral flavours (acacia).The palate is fresh and sharp. Fresh fruit flavours of apricot and melon abound, clean and refreshing with a long finish.
