Spring news

The spring mildness of February and March is already giving us a glimpse of the start of the season on the hills of Gigondas! Fortunately, the cool nights are tempering down nature’s enthusiasm, which is slowly beginning to awaken. The cherry trees are blossoming and the first leaves are beginning to appear. In the vineyards, the pruning period is now over, and the buds are growing visibly. This important work has made it possible to prepare the future 2019 vintage!

1929-2019 – 90 years of History!

On March 1st, we decided to honour the memory of Pierre Amadieu, our grandfather, who created the estate in 1929. It is with our family, in our cellars, that we celebrated this 90th anniversary. It was a wonderful evening, full of emotion and memories.

2017 vintage is unveiled

Characterised by drought and summer heat, the 2017 vintage heralded very solar wines and slightly hard tannins. Now that we have reached the end of the ageing process, we are discovering a completely different wine profile, balance and structure are present, to our greatest satisfaction. The bottling is in progress, just a little more patience to discover our Gigondas, Vacqueyras  2017…

Gigondas & Easter, the perfect match !

In less than a month, the Easter festivities will take place, so it is time to think about the menu with its traditional tasty lamb ! But what can I drink with these famous dishes? Thanks to its notes of candied red and black fruits, its spicy flavours, our Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane will be a perfect pairing for lamb. Seasonal asparagus will blend perfectly with our white Côtes du Rhône Domaine Grand Romane. A rabbit terrine will match the fruits of our Gigondas Romane Machotte. Chocolate means Grenache, so our Gigondas Le Pas de l’Aigle can be enjoyed with a dessert. And finally, what better way to quench your thirst than with a Gigondas Romane Machotte rosé during the famous egg hunt!
