Description

Domaine La Garrigue is set in the heart of the Vacqueyras appellation area (Southern Côtes du Rhône), in the Vaucluse department of France. The estate buildings are just 2.5 km from the main village, on a plateau called Les Garrigues. The estate was created in 1850, and has always been worked by the same family, spanning 6 generations. The Bernard family has always worked in respect of tradition, crafting authentic natural wines that are typical of the terroirs they came from. The Climate is of Mediterranean type, characterised by lots of sunshine, low rainfall and lots of Mistral wind. The Mistral blows on around 120 days a year and is really good for vine health; limiting fungal disease including mildew or botrytis. The climate is temperate, thanks to the influence of the pre-alpine Dentelles de Montmirail.

TASTING NOTES

A deep purple in colour with scents of red fruits, herbs de Provence and black pepper. The palate is chewy in texture with flavours of sweet cherries and spice. The finish is lingering and fresh.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Serve with tournedos steaks with wild mushrooms, lamb chops with creamed onions or venison stew with juniper berries and cream.
