Côtes de Provence AOP - Côtes de Provence Notre Dame des Anges AOP
In this green setting, we produce exceptional cuvées with flavors of authenticity.
Historians agree that the cultivation of the vine appeared in Provence at the beginning of the 6th century BC, 2600 years ago. However, it was not until the 2nd century BC and the conquest of Gaul by Rome that wine flourished completely on the Mediterranean coast. Imbued with a strong winegrowing culture, the Romans also brought new winemaking techniques and new grape varieties. The word Garnaude comes from the Gallo-Roman language and translates as “megalithic site”. A dolmen was also found within the estate. Later it is the great monastic orders that took over. The beginning of the construction of the domain as such began in 1792.
From the Romans to the present day…
The Lamoot family has immersed itself in the history of this estate.
She made the bet to succeed in preserving all the riches of this place and to take care of it.
Many projects have been launched, year after year, to guarantee our tasters a high quality wine. A major renovation of the cellar allows us today to optimize our processing the grapes and our winemaking conditions.
Notre Dame des Anges - Our Lady of the Angels
The specificity of our terroir is recognized through the new DGC (Complementary Geographical Denomination) Notre Dame des Anges to which we belong.
Inside the territory of the Côtes de Provence, a vineyard has been identified in its singularity and its typicity. We are proud to be part of it.
Its rise dates from the Middle Ages under the leadership of the priory of Notre Dame de Pignans which was then the main owner and on which depended the monastery of Notre Dame des Anges.
This territory is bordered to the south by the Massif des Maures and to the north by limestone hills. The DGC bears the name of Notre Dame des Anges in reference to the highest point of the Massif.
It is characterized by a Mediterranean climate with continental influences and by a diversity of soils. This typicity is at the origin of the balance that characterizes the wines of Notre Dame des Anges.
High Environmental Value
And above all, we have chosen to preserve the ecosystem of our lands by guaranteeing the quality of our winegrowing practices.
Today, the vines are managed in High Environmental Value, with a view to preserving the natural ecosystem.
On this exceptional terroir, we have initiated a reflection on the practice of sustainable agriculture. We want the vines to draw all their strength from a living soil to produce beautiful berries bursting with good aromas and good acidity.
