Domaine de Durban was started in 1960 by Jacques Leydier and today is run by his grandsons, Henri and Philippe. This family estate makes some of the more memorable wines of the region, displaying the concentration of the southern Rhone while maintaining finesse and freshness – a characteristic of the limestone-flecked soil and cooler temperatures.
