A beautiful dark red color, this wine has a pretty straightforward, floral nose, with soft and silky tannins. Very full and round mouth. Notes of black fruit on the nose, and on the palate a sumptuous mix of red and black fruit. Complex and elegant.

Diane de Puymorin left a corporate career in Paris to found a wine estate in southern France. A lifelong overachiever, she studied the terroirs and selected the very best for her new home, renaming the estate after her family crest: or, gold, and gueules, a heraldic term for red. The vineyards of Château d’Or et de Gueules, which are certified organic, are in the area known as Saint Gilles: a combination of drastic diurnal temperature shifts, vigorous winds, and a stony alluvial soil gives impeccably balanced wines, and Diane is campaigning to have this unique terroir recognized with cru status.
