Tasting notes:Â Ruby-red. The intensely perfumed nose evokes ripe red and dark berries, potpourri and white pepper, backed by a hint of musky herbs. Juicy and supple on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors
About the Winery: The domaine was established in 2010 when Adrien Roustan inherited vines from his grandfather including 4.5 ha of Gigondas located in the spectacular Grand Montmirail vineyard together with some plots since purchased in Vacqueyras, CÃ´tes du RhÃ´ne and IGP. Today the total area farmed is 20 hectares. Adrienâ€™s parents were not winemakers so he set about educating himself attending Beauneâ€™s oenology/viticulture program and spent 3 years working in Burgundy including an apprenticeship in 2007 at Domaine de la Romanee Conti, and also working with Turley in California. Influenced by his time with these estates Adrien works organically being certified since 2012. In the cellar he uses whole bunch as much as possible with very light extraction and ages mostly in cement. In the vineyards he aims for planting at 10,000 vines per hectare working mostly with old established Grenache vines in both Gigondas (1975) and Vacqueyras (1950â€™s).
