Pierre Amadieu Pierre Amadieu les Caladières Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, black currant, raspberries fragrances together with a hint of violet are very typical of Syrah wines. Delicate, the mouth is silky but powerful showing red fruits notes, tannins are round and soft. The colour is deep and the alcohol content is low moving to truffles and mushroom aromas after few years.Taste and appreciate this beautiful wine at room temperature (17°C) while young or within the following 6 years. This charming wine will match perfectly with a roasted beef in sauce or a veal escalope on fresh vegetables.

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. 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 presen... Read more
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 fruit, maybe blackberry with some earthy notes as well. Medium bodied with a moderate tannic element that is nicely balanced with the rest of the wine.

This Rhône red offers a nose of lovely sun-ripened strawberries, which give way to darker fruits and hints of licorice, herbs and pepper. Moderate tannins and a rustic, pastoral feel make this wine a perfect match for lamb or venison accompanied by grilled or roasted summer vegetables.

Great care was taken in making this blend of Syrah (80%) and Grenache (20%). Remarkably rich and full-bodied, with heady aromas of roasted meat, olives and black pepper. Complex and elegant, it has medium-soft tannins and a juicy finish. Serve with pan roasted rack of lamb and root vegetables.

This offers a ripe, plump core of mulled spice, melted black licorice and dark plum and blackberry fruit, all mingling together through the toast-framed finish. Drink now.

We are fans of this producer and their many expressions from the Rhone’s greatest areas. This brand new release from the legendary 2007 vintage has been set aside for long aging, and reveals tremendous power, complexity, barrel character and style that rivals other wines from the area, and puts most Châteaneuf-du-Pape to shame.

Shows the heady ripeness of the vintage, with lots of velvety-textured layers of fig sauce, blackberry paste, melted black licorice and fruitcake. A singed mesquite thread keeps the finish honest. For the hedonist crowd. Drink now through 2017.

A deep purple colour, some delicate red fruits and fig aromas on the nose. On the palate, velvety aromas of black fruits, mint, liquorice, garrigue.
