Tasting Notes
This Southern Rhône blend shows great density and depth, with blackberry, kirsch, black raspberry, Asian spices, violets and bramble. While generous, red wines from Cairanne always present a certain refreshing character and finesse, and this wine is no exception.
 
 
Domaine l’Ameillaud is a family-owned vineyard, situated in the recently elevated (Febraury 2016) appellation of Cairanne, in the Province of Vaucluse (southern France). The property dates back to the end of the 18th century, but was purchased by an expat Englishman, Nick Thompson, in the 1980’s.  He was looking to settle into an agrarian lifestyle centered around good wine and good cheese and now runs the winery with his wife, Sabine.
 
 
Today the domaine covers a total surface area of 140 acres (55 hectares). Grapes are destemmed before a traditional fermentation process. The grapes for this wine come from 45-year old vines. The soils consist of limestone and clay on south/south-west facing slopes located to the east of the village of Cairanne.  The vines are farmed sustainably.
