Pierre Amadieu Gigondas Romane Machotte 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Plum marmalade, vanilla and blackcurrant highlight the finesse of the soft tannins. On the finish, scents of thyme, laurel and rosemary reveal an original and aromatic bouquet ending on a spicy persistency (black pepper). Appreciate on a beef stew with a Rosemary blade, try the match with a vanilla ice cream with its strawberry purée. Drink it now or within the next 5 years.

Pierre Amadieu:
Our history begins in 1929 when my grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation.

Our history begins in 1929 when my grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is then one of the firsts to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtains from 1932 a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris.I am presently on the head of the company and I am in charge of winemaking and maturing. I work with my uncle Claude who runs the vineyard. Together we follow the familial way of thinking by respecting soils and traditions in order to make you share wines faithful to the quality ambition of our grandfather and by adding a note of modernity in order to delight the most demanding and the most curious palates.I am not a follower of over-extracted wines and often "heavy" to taste ; my ambition is rather to obtain well-balanced wines with a Burgundy fineness. Through the maturing I try to reveal all the elegance and the richness of our protected terroirs located on the heights of the appellation Gigondas. From vines to the bottling patience and observation are required. Today appreciated all over the world, every vintage reserves its subtleties which I am happy to subject to your appreciation.

dark red color...very subtle nose of red fruit and pepper.....very big tannic wine with a decent balance of fruit and noticeable pepper....very long tannic finish..could use some aging.

Notes of plum, blackberry and black currant are laced with underpinnings of licorice and spice. Very well balanced with a long finish.
