Overlooking the Canal du Midi, Chateau d'Argens is an impressive manor house situated at the heart of the village of the same name, which for a long time formed part of the Lordship of Sérame.

A deep red color with garnet reflections, this wine offers aromas of ripe fruits with notes of vanilla. From the attack on the palate we observe beautiful and dense tannins. Fine and full due to the black fruits. The finish is long and ends with a nice balance between tannins, fruit and freshness.


"A velvety red with cherries, mixed berries, herbs and baking spices follow through to a medium body with finely grained tannins. Layered and well-balanced with a juicy finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now."
"Deep ruby colour. Sweet and ripe nose displaying red berries, plum, pepper and garrigue with a mild hint of oak and toast. Rich and ample body, still a youthful texture but no hard edges, rather rich in tannin with ripe red fruit flavours, ground white pepper and liquorice leading on to a long and warm finish. A very good wine
