Chusclan and neighbouring Laudun (30 Gard, Occitanie) is one of the Côtes du Rhône villages entitled to add its village name to the wine label: Côtes du Rhône Villages Chusclan and holds its own Vintage Wine Festival (Vendanges de l’Histoire) 12 – 13 October 2019.
Laudun red wines are characterized by the elegance and predominance of perfectly ripe fruit. Chusclan reds, on the other hand, are lovely generous wines with remarkable intensity.
The very fresh Laudun and Chusclan rosé wines, made from Grenache and Syrah, are distinguished by their generous, delicious, light fruity aromas.
The white wines stand out and are appreciated for their characteristic finesse, freshness and floral lightness.
This is a small (150 hectare) appellation with high quality wines – although necessarily small production.
Mainly red wines from the classic southern Rhône vareties – Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre.
Chusclan and Laudun are on the west bank of the Rhône, near Bagnols-sur-Cèze.
