AOP Côtes du Rhône White 2019 « Banderet »
By naming this range in honour of the epic of Capitan Ravoire – a valiant knight
in the 16th century in the Comtat Venaissin in 1593 - Olivier Ravoire was keen
to highlight the history of the Ravoire family. In this respect, the different
appellations have been named using terms associated with chivalry.
Banderet, the name of our Côtes-du-Rhône vintage, is associated with the knight bannerets in the Ravoire family for several generations.
The vintage is the result of a meticulous blend of grapes from the best plots in the appellation. This wine was created to offer a rich tasting experience to share and discover.
