Laudun

Independent community area in the department Gard in the southern French appellation Côtes du Rhône-Villages (see the AOC regulations there). In addition to Laudun, the area also includes the two municipalities of Saint-Victor-la-Coste and Tresques. The name Laudun is allowed on the label be added. Viticulture dates back to Roman times. In the 17th century Laudun was one of the famous wines that could use the name "Côte du Rhône Gardois". After an old legend that goes back to the cult of the sun, a golden goat surrounded by a circle of flames appears every year on June 24 in a ravine. The vineyards cover 475 hectares of vineyards on stony, gritty soil. Red, rosé and white wines are produced. The latter are among the best of the appellation. Well-known producers include Cave des Quatre Chemins, Château St-Maurice, Domaine Pélaquié and Domaine Rémy Estournel.
