Martine and Christian Vache established Domaine de la Monardiere in 1987, just before Vacqueyras received AOC status in 1990, joining her neighbours Gigondas and Châteauneuf du Pape. Their very old vines are carefully maintained, and their approach is based on natural cultivation, with as little intervention as possible. Grenache and Syrah from 60 year old vines, fermented in concrete vats and aged in old oak casks. Bottled without fining or filtration.
A deep red wine with prune and white pepper aromas and a velvety palate.
French still red wine from South Rhone Valley France, made with Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah.
