This small family estate, owned by Anne Marie and Jean-Marie Astart, is well known for producing excellent wines from old vines with very low yields (in some cases as low as 18 hectolitres per hectare, half the average yield in Rhône) so it would be an understatement to say they are passionate about what they do. 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.
