Attractive red cherry colour with light purple tints, displays nice kirsch and squashed plum aromas. Rounded chunky mouth-feel, weighty with strawberry jam, raspberry and cooked cherry fruit, lovely ripeness.

The 'domaine' saw the light of day thanks to Pierre and Mireille's zeal and two families coming together. Pierre Giraud is the son of a long line of winegrowers going back more than six centuries. Descendant of the Arrnenier family, he's always tended his vineyard with loving care. The Buou family owned the village distillery for generations; Mireille has always worked alongside her husband helping to expand the vineyard. Now she looks after the day-to-day running of the Domaine. The story begins in 1974 when Pierre and Mireille took on 4ha (10 acres) of vines as tenant farmers. For 12 years, the domaine would grow little by little through purchasing pieces of rented land. In 1981. Pierre and Mireille turned the family distillery into a winemaking and barrel-ageing cellar. That same year, the domaine 's first vintage would be born. In 1987. the running of the Armenier family's vineyard was handed down to their children. Pierre and Mireille took care of 8ha (20 acres) of 100 year old vines found on the Crau plateau, Les Terres Blanches ('White Earth'), the Gallimardes and the sandy soils around Pignan in the Rayas area. In 1998. Pierre was ready to pass on his love of the vine and wine to his children. Marie and Francois took on the estate hand-in-hand. Under their parents' watchful eye. they devoted themselves to tending vines and winemaking. They focused their efforts on selecting parcel by parcel, doing minimal treatments, upgrading their cellar to make finer and finer wines while respecting family traditions. Read less
