Pierre Amadieu Red Rhone Blend Vacqueyras la Grangeliére 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The full bodied wine is aged 9 months in barrels (50% in new oak) whereas the fruity one is kept in big oak casks to soften the tannins. The combination of both characters is very subtle: soft oaky taste and fruity scents. Fragrances of small red fruits develop in mouth a wide palate of spicy and peppery notes. The pleasant taste of this "cru" will enhance the flavours of a leg of lamb with sage or cheeses... Drink at room temperature while young 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. 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.

AUD$20 from Prince Wine Store, imported by Cellarhand. Med+ to intense dark ruby color. A blend of Grenache and Syrah, this opens with a restrained nose, initially crushed dry herbs, then a waft of anise before cranberry and red currant aromas. Dry, medium bodied wine with velvety texture, high acidity that isn’t on the forefront. 13.5% alc. Powdery tannins linger on the finish, almost dusty cocao in nature. Pierre Amadieu is a well-regarded producer of Gigondas. Drink now. Easy drinking with flavours of red berries. Great with roasted pumpkin, zucchini and eggplant with hommus spread.
