AOP Cotes du Rhone Village Signargues   

You will not find a village or at least a "hameau" named Sinargues. It's a plateau situated between four communes, Domazan, Estézargues, Rochefort-du-Gard and Saze.
The potiential area of the appellationen is 600 ha.
It's the most southern appellation in Cotes du Rhone.


Area km2 Altitude m Indhab. 2015
Domazan 11,42 35 - 162 915
Estezargues 11,59 49 - 232 534
Rochefort-du-Gard 34,03 48 - 267 7.505
Saze 12,06 54 - 195 2.011

Until 2005 the appellation for these four communes was Cotes du Rhone Village, but since 2005 the name of the wines from selected parcels may add the name Signargues. Only red wines are included in the appallation.

The rules for the use of grapes, le encépagement, is like other Village-appellations: At least 50% Grenache, At least 20% Syrah or Mourvedre and not more than 20% of other varieties.

In the four communes you'll find two cooperatives Vigneron d'Estézargues in Estézargues and in Rochefort-du-Gard Les Vignerons du Castelas. 
Domazan is a small commune but most of the producers here have for many years had their own cellar and make their own wines to sell in bottles or i tank to a negociant.
The mainpart of the producers in the appellation vinifying their grapes sell a part of the production in tank depending of their possibilty to sell the bottled wines themself. It has not been an easy task to make the wines from the appellation known well by the consumers.

As you can see of the ciffres below there are some differences between the declared number of hectares in the vintages. It might depends of of coise between declaring Signargues or Cotes du Rhone.
