PGI Vaucluse from a renowned Southern Rhone Winemaker
Blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah. The style is fruity, generous, with outstanding power and density for its appellation, and a fine, velvety texture.
Wild berries, red and black cherries, plums, garrigue, violets, and pepper emanate from the super fresh, youthful bouquet. The palate is smooth, juicy, with excellent firmness. Excellent wine, you might consider ordering it by the case!
Food Pairing: Hamburger, grilled dishes, pizza, sausages, stews.
Cellaring: Drinks very well now, but can age for 5-6 years without any issues.
STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Harvested from a 2-hectare terrace right next to the river l'Ouvèze, with stony terroir (galets roulés) on top of sand. Aged on its lees in stainless steel tanks for 7 months and bottled in March 2023
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.
