Domaine des Carabiniers in Roquemaure, near Avignon has used organic viticulture since 1977 and is now certified 100% biodynamic. This approach, along with its use of traditional methods and an intense passion for winemaking has enabled it to produce some of the best wines of the region and one of Davy’s favourite Rhônes.
Harvested at night to prevent oxidation and keep the freshness of the aromas and, fermented with natural yeasts. Aromas of white flowers and apricot. Medium bodied with good length and light woody tannins.
Undoubtedly one of the best white Liracs in 2017. It's flinty and floral, with jasmine-infused quince. The palate has a lovely intense burst of freshness and florality, with gentle pear-flesh grain to the texture and a gently tapered finish with a hint of marzipan. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.- 92 pts Matt Walls, Decanter Magazine
Biodynamic, bordering on natural wine that deliciously manages to be both mineral and floral. One for fish soup.- Fiona Beckett, The Guardian
