Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its brick colour offers a nice nose of red fruit coulis, cocoa, thyme and dried figs. On the palate, this wine has a good balance, rather full-bodied on ripe tannins.

Brick Red


Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

The name “Château du Bois de la Garde” refers to Napoleon’s most experienced soldiers, the Grognards, who used to fight in the prestigious “Garde Impériale.” Coming back from the battlefield as civilians, they laid down the roots of this prestigious domain by starting this vineyard.

Domain and appellation

  • Mousset-Barrot

    Located between Avignon and Orange, the Château du Bois de la Garde belongs to the Domaines Mousset-Barrot. Specialized in Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf du Pape, the Maison only produces AOC, vins de pays (local wines) and Village appellation wines.


    • Terroir: This provencal mansion overlooks a large continuous domain of 60 hectares. With a South-west orientation, the vineyard lays on a pebble soil that retains the heat during the day to redistribute it over night.


    • Viticulture: The owners like to explain in detail the care taken  for the vines throughout the year. A special focus is given to the Mistral (South of France wind) and its influence on the vines. The domain uses the goblet training system for pruning.


    • Vinification: The fermentation and maceration occurs in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages in cement tanks.
