Pierre Amadieu Cotes Du Rhone Reserve
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: Each varietal are picked by hand and vinified in stainless steel tanks to allow the fruit and the freshness of each different grape variety to express itself fully. The wines are then matured for six months in oak barrels to accentuate their exceptional aromatic complexity.
TASTING NOTES: This deep-coloured wine displays delightful fragrances of blackberry, blackcurrant along with raspberries. A full and delicate mouth, very intense with velvety tannins ending on a perfect freshness. Appreciate now or within the next 5 years with a rib of beef or mature cheeses.
