Christian and Monique Voeux operate their 10-hectare vineyard in Séguret, a village next to Gigondas and close to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Records show that the vineyard has been in the family’s possession since the days of the French Revolution. Christian is a well-respected oenologist in the area and has worked as head winemaker in some of the most renowned estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He understands that the foundation of any great wine is laid in the vineyard. Christian and Monique farm their land following sustainable and organic principles.
With its origins dating back to the arrival of the Romans in 125 BC, the Séguret vineyards were elevated to the Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages-Séguret level in 1967. It is Christian’s ambition to constantly improve the quality of his wines to help bring the vineyard up to the cru level of the neighbouring Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
“Located in Séguret, a historic village close to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the wines from Christian Voeux represent fantastic value, rivalling higher-priced wines from the more famous neighbouring appellations. Honest wines without make-up.”
