Red wines

Grangeneuve

It’s right on top of the red AOC Beaumes de Venise, above the village of Suzette, high up at 1500′ and on 10 acres of small, windy terraces. The grapes that form the Cuvée Grangeneuve : old grenaches, carignan and syrah, along with white viognier are blend together from the beginning of the fermentation. The wines age for 12 months in 20 years old wooden tanks. They are elegant, very enjoyable, and reflect nature’s generosity.

Cuvée Nathalie – Syrah

This cuvée is made with our top Syrah grapes, only when nature let them ripe and give their full potential. A long ageing in new wood barrels will add more complexity, body and length to this exclusive wine. The 2015 vintage is now available.

Les Clapas

Altitude Côtes du Rhône! Here, the vines are above 1500′ high. The temperature is cooler – 5° less than in Beaumes de Venise. The harvest takes place 3 weeks later than in the plain. You can feel the freshness of the mountains and the warmth of the South. The wines are fruity, spicy, fresh and gouleyant. 50 % grenache, 50 % syrah.

White wines

La Borry

In the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail, between 1200 and 2000′, the viognier blossoms : the altitude injects a stimulating freshness to the grapes. La Borry has white flowers aromas – almond, honeysuckle – and white fruits flavours – apricot, peach – which are typical of the village of Suzette’s terroir. AOC Côtes du Rhône.

La Tabardonne

La Tabardonne is a blend of 90% Viognier and 10% Roussanne, AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages. It is fermented and aged on lees in 2 years old french oak barrels. The result is a nice, round, mouthful and elegant gastronomy wine, which can go with a whole meal. Pairs very well also with spicy dishes.

Special cuvées

Roussanne

Dry white wine. AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages. The Roussanne grapes are scattered between 1200′ and 1800′. Most of the time they are harvested together with the Viognier grapes. Some years we can vinify part of them separately in order to elaborate this small “garage” cuvée, rare and very pleasant!

Les Trois Roses

Our rosé is always a blend of three grapes, including 20% Viognier. All three grapes are blend as soon as in the press. Nature does’nt always provide us with the chance of doing it every year. So make the most of it when you can grab it!

Viognier

Viognier is a white wine grape variety. The origin of the Viognier grape is unknown; it is presumed to be an ancient grape, possibly originating in Dalmatia (present day Croatia) and then brought to the Rhône by the Romans. It is the only permitted grape for the French wine Condrieu in the Northern Rhône Valley.
Since the late 80es, it can also be found in the Ardèche region, the Languedoc, the Southern Rhône Valley.

The potential quality of Viognier is highly dependent on viticultural practices and climate, with the grape requiring a long, warm growing season in order to fully ripen but not a climate that is so hot that the grape develops high levels of sugars and potential alcohol before its aromatic notes can develop.

In Suzette, the Mistral and the altitude have a distinct effect on the Viognier vineyards. The wind tempers the Mediterranean climate of the region, and cools the vines down after the severe heat of summer.

viognier dentelles de montmirail

Capricious and difficult, the viognier is generally trellised, because given the great length of its branches, it is relatively sensitive to the wind. It should be carried in moderately long size, with a density of plantation high enough to obtain good results.

The Viognier varietal has more natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality.

The grape is naturally a low yielding variety.

The highly aromatic and fruit forward nature of the grape allows Viognier to pair well with spicy foods, lobster, sea food.

Beaumes de Venise

A little information about this beautiful appellation!

In the Southern Rhône Valley, between Gigondas and Vacqueyras, in the heart of the stunning Dentelles de Montmirail, the vines that produce red Beaumes de Venise lie on 1400 acres of hills going up to 500m (1500′), covering 4 villages : Suzette (the highest, at the foot on mount Saint Amant), Lafare, La Roque Alric and Beaumes de Venise.

About 30 independant wine makers produce quality wines within the respect of their beautiful environment.

The red Beaumes de Venise wine became a “Cru des Côtes du Rhône” in 2005.
