Domaine de Couron

This family-run estate lies in the tiny hamlet of Saint Marcel d’Ardeche.  Vestiges of a Roman outpost have been found throughout  the vineyards, as wine has been grown here since antiquity.  Parcels are terraced at Couron, with one higher in elevation than the next.  Balance and great finesse are the hallmarks at Domain de Couron. Jean-Luc carries the mantle, a descendant of nine generations of wine growers. Using sustainable farming techniques, Jean-Luc and Marie-Lise Dorthe craft, with loving hands, wines on land once cultivated by the Romans.
