- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Their history begins in 1929 when his grandfather decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is then one of the firsts to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtains from 1932 a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris. Pierre is presently at the head of the company and in charge of winemaking and maturing. He works with his uncle Claude who runs the vineyard. Together they follow the familial way of thinking by respecting soils and traditions in order to make you share wines faithful to the quality ambition of their grandfather and by adding a note of modernity in order to delight the most demanding and the most curious palates.
WINEMAKING: A blend of the Grenache and Syrah grape varieties, harvested by hand in October. The wine is made following the methods traditionally used for this famous appellation and is aged for 12 months in oak barrels.
TASTING NOTE: A deep purple colour, it has delicate red fruit and fig aromas on the nose. On the palate enjoy its weight, and the powerful yet smooth black fruit and liquorice flavours with notes of mint and "garrigue" or wild herbs.
