Château de Valcombe, a 10-generation family-owned property since 1740, is the southernmost estate in the Costières de Nîmes. Close to the Mediterranean Sea and planted on soils boasting the highest concentration of limestone in the region, Valcombe offers refined, concentrated wines with exuberant freshness and minerality.
Following the Second World War, the estate was inherited by Charles Ricome, who replanted most of the vineyards and was the first to plant Syrah in the appellation. The reins of the estate have been handed to Charles’s son Dominique and now his grandsons Basile and Nicolas. The vineyards planted in 1955 are still in cultivation and are, along with the entirety of the estates’ vineyards, in the process of being converted to organic viticulture.
