Soil and grape varieties  
The Costieres de Nimes Chateau Roubaud wines owe their quality to the work done by the successive generations of owners, to the wine-making techniques but also to the quality of the domain's soil itself.
The vineyards grow on the poor lands where the red rolled river-rock, come down from the Alps, along with the dry climate and abundant sunshine, insure a perfect maturity and low yield necessary to make quality Costieres de Nimes wines.
Total surface of vineyards within appellation Costieres de Nimes : 70  hectares.
Percentage of grape varieties: 30% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Carignan, 10 %Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Roussanne, Clairette, Ugni blanc ...
In these flourishing vineyards, the flavorful Grenache variety balances perfectly with the powerful aromatic Syrah, and with the Mourvèdre, to create superb red wines.
The Syrah variety, along with the Grenache, produces a delicious rosé, very fruity, the perfect "summer wine." The dry and aromatic white wines made from Roussanne and Grenache Blanc grapes, rounds out the Chateau Roubaud production.
With the incomparable color and aroma, these wines of low yield, give proof to the wine-making destiny of the round river-rock filled soils.
