Tasting Notes

Located in the northern part of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, this Domaine is truly unique, boasting three distinct terroirs with ancient vines as their foundation. The region's renowned pebbles scattered over clay and sandy soils impart complexity and elegance to the wines. The vineyard, managed using biodynamic practices, benefits from rigorous grape selection and precise winemaking techniques. This approach is applied consistently across all vineyards, underscoring the Estate's dedication and reverence for the vines. The 2012 vintage showcases delightful aromas of dried flowers, candied dark fruits, minerals, and balsamic notes. Soft, silky tannins contribute to a fresh and well-balanced palate, all while maintaining a robust structure.
