    Product description

    Vacqueyras (like Gigondas) is a ‘little brother’ to Chateauneuf-du-Pape and can offer great value. Montirius is the region’s top domaine, farmed biodynamically since 1999 by Christine and Eric Saurel.  ‘Le Clos’ is a unique parcel of eight and a half hectares of vines over twenty years old, lying on three different type of soil. The site is protected by eleven hectares of 100 year old oak woods, creating a micro climate with low rainfall.

    Made with half Grenache and half Syrah, the wine is aged for 18 months, but with no oak. The result is a silky, full-bodied red with black fruit aromas and now hints of game and leaf mould (‘sous bois’) beginning to develop as the wines approaches full maturity.  Despite all its body, the impression is of elegance and balance –  smooth on the palate with velvety tannins and great length.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Domaine de Montirius

    Domaine de Montirius is a 58 hectares of vine located in the southern Rhône Valley within the appellation of Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Côtes du Rhône. All vineyards have been converted to biodynamic culture since 1996. They have also added  a Vin de Pays du Vaucluse to their range, made from biological and biodynamic grapes. All wines go through vats with no interior coating so they are constantly in contact with cosmic and telluric forces. This allows the team to extend the care they give to the grapes in the winery. Their philosophy is to associate their daily work towards the  search for perfect balance both in the vines and in the winery, in order to obtain the greatest of wines from the land… View our selection.
