    Free Delivery from €175 We aim to deliver within 2 working days.

    A Generous Côtes du Rhône Villages, Séguret

    During a stage of development moving towards minty notes, this cuvée adopts deceptive northern characteristics in its aromas. Generous and velvety, it gradually unveils its impressive tannic framework.
    Its notable freshness brings pleasure today, yet we believe that extended aging in the bottle will greatly benefit it. A truly beautiful wine.

    STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

    Christian Voeux is one of the most renowned winemakers in the Southern Rhone Valley having spent 24 as cellar master at prestigious Château Mont-Redon in Châteauneuf du Pape and a further eight years as general maanger at another great estate, Château La Nerthe.

    He retired to his family estate Domaine de l’Amauve in Séguret which he inherited from his parents and continuous to make wine with his wife Monique and son Nicolas. The estate is certified organic and comprises a patchwork of 11ha spread over 25 plots. Soils are diverse across so many vineyards but include limestone, gravel, clay and marl.

    The origin of the name of the property comes from the mallow flower, which are present in great number around the vineyard during spring and which give off discrete floral flavours.
    The wines are certified organic so the use of sulphur is limited and fermentation is by naturally occurring yeasts. Red wines are not fined and some cuvées are unfiltered.

    This 2018 vintage was very special considering the exceptional climatic conditions encountered in May-June - 200 mm of rainfall within a month, with high temperatures and no wind - however, the very beautiful back season allowed the grapes to obtain a superb maturity as well as an irreproachable quality.
