The wines of the Domaine are the fruit of an intimate dialogue between the winemaker and each portion of the land.

Their winemaking involves a century-old savoir-faire that preserves and expresses the different aromatic nuances of each variety of grape.
Blend: 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre
This is gorgeous, with lush linzer torte, boysenberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce notes that captivate, while anise, Lapsang souchong tea and singed apple wood notes fill in the background. The long finish is fleshy and driven.
The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve reveals a boatload of roasted Provencal herbs intermixed with lavender, licorice, cassis, kirsch, cedar, underbrush and pepper. In addition to great fruit, it possesses fabulous concentration, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a sensational, 40-second finish.
