RHÔNE

Rhône is one of, if not the oldest winemaking region in the whole of France. There is evidence of vines being cultivated in these parts as early as 800 BC, and widespread knowledge of its use as the winegrowing region
for Romans under the leadership of Julius Caesar, before the Gaul conquest of 53AD.

The region itself is divided into two distinct areas, that showcase very different terroirs and climates. That to the north, known as Rhône Septentrionale, is far cooler, creating perfect conditions for the production of very elegant, lean wines using Syrah grapes. Contrastingly Rhône Meridionale, in the south, experiences a far more Mediterranean climate, ensuring the widespread use of grapes dependant on slightly milder temperatures, such as Grenache and Mourvèdre.

Generally speaking, The Rhône is best known for the quality of its reds, but white wines from the area are criminally underrated. Local grape varieties Roussanne and Marsanne are beginning to receive the recognition
they deserve, especially in the Australian market, and provide a fantastic alternative to Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.

We at l’Art du Vin are particularly pleased to continue our association with Domaine Ferraton, in the north of the region, and Domaine Duseigneur in the south. Both are very good independent producers who we believe
continue to produce excellent wines that our customers evidently enjoy!

Gigondas, Domaine Grand Romane, Domaine Pierre Amadieu 2010Gigondas, Domaine Grand Romane, Domaine Pierre Amadieu 2010Our price: £23.30ViewLocated in the appellation of Gigondas towards the south of the Rhône valley, Pierre Amadieu’s vineyard is one of true quality. Having originally purchased the estate back in 1929, when incidentally it only comprised 7 hectares, Pierre expanded, planting new vineyards and broadening his range of grape varieties. He still oversees proceedings, although the day to day operations of the Domaine are now controlled by his son Claude and grandson, Pierre Jr. Grapes including Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah are grown to create their peppery Grande Romane, a deep, cherry coloured red featuring sophisticated notes of liquorice, light toast and Provencal herbs.
Grenache Syrah, Saint Cirice, 2012Grenache Syrah, Saint Cirice, 2012Our price: £8.75ViewChâteau Saint-Cyrgues is located on the southern side of the Costières de Nîmes, which were formed in prehistoric times by alluvial deposits from the Durance and Rhône rivers. The ground is composed of moulded flint shingles and stones. The estate, 40 or so hectares, is in between le Puech de Dardaillon and the historic site of Espeyran. Espeyran was an important Hellenic trading post situated strategically on one of the arms of the Rhône. The site appears to have seen the passage of numerous commercial commodities. Archeological digs reveal the presence of many ceramics including different varieties of amphora coming from various regions of the Mediterranean. Amphorae were used to transport wine, amongst other things. One can therefore presume that wine has been flowing for many years around the Domaine Saint-Cyrgues. La Chapelle de Mayran, Domaine Duseigneur, 2012La Chapelle de Mayran, Domaine Duseigneur, 2012Our price: £11.45ViewClose to the pretty village of Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres and within sight of the renowned vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the 70 acre Domaine Duseigneur was established by Jean Duseigneur in 1967. Jean was very much a visionary with regards to the adoption of biodynamic culture. He was quick to acknowledge the importance of nature with regards to the preservation of his red clay soils, in a move towards what we recognise today as biodynamic production, despite the fact that such practices were unfashionable at the time. Now, four generations later, Jean’s foresight has been vindicated; the estate is fully organic and was certified biodynamic in 2004. La Paradou Viognier, Chateau Pisque 2013La Paradou Viognier, Chateau Pisque 2013Our price: £8.95ViewVines were introduced in the Ventoux area, as well as the rest of the Rhône Valley, by the Romans more than 2000 years ago. Yet the history of Château Pesquié wines is the story of a family passionate about the Ventoux region. They recognized the region’s potential to make great wine and set out to uncover this hidden treasure. This family adventure, spanning three generations, began early in the 1970s with Odette & René Bastide who restructured the vineyards. In 1985 Edith and Paul Chaudière took over and created one of the first independent wineries of the AOC (then mostly ruled by Cooperatives). In 2003, Paul & Edith’s two sons, Alexandre and Frédéric, took over the Domaine.Ideally situated at the crossroads between Alpine and Mediterranean worlds, the Château Pesquié vineyards enjoy an outstanding microclimate. The southern slopes of Mont Ventoux are blessed with great levels of sunshine. This Mediterranean climate reinforced by the Mistral, the frequent northern wind, is ideal for the cultivation of healthy vines. The average altitude of the vineyards of more than 300 metres and the wide variation of temperatures between days and nights create excellent physiological balance in the vines, add colour, concentration, freshness and balance to the wines. The Ventoux is an area in which grapes ripen the latest in the South of the Rhône Valley. Château Pesquié is located in the latest ripening part of this late area.
