Recently acquired by Domaine Pierre Amadieu, former owners, Annne-Marie and Jean-Marie Astart, hand crafted this exceptional wine from old vines and low yields (in some cases as low as 18 hectolitres per hectare, half the average yield in the Rhône). They mainly produce wines under the Cairanne AOC, a Côtes du Rhône Villages that recently gained its cru status joining Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras.
Aged for 12 months in oak. Smoky olive and black fruit characteristics. Medium to full bodied with outstanding purity and an upfront style.
