Description

Domaine de l’Amandine’s vineyards cover an area of 120 acres (50 hectares) over an extensive part of the southern Rhone Valley-from Vaison la Romaine, via Séguret, out to Jonquieres. The vines themselves average 40 years old and are grouped together accordingly : ¤ On the slopes and foothills beneath the beautiful village of Séguret, laid out on large terraces or « banquettes ». Here are some of our oldest vines, dating back to the 1950’s, when following one of the coldest winters on record, thousands of century-old olives trees died and were subsequently replaced with vines. ¤ On the terraces carved out of the hillside, between Vaison la Romaine and Séguret, by Jean Pierre Verdeau in the mid 1970’s. This collection of extremely difficult, stony terrain is known simply to us as « la Montagne » (the Mountain). On the highest terrace of this lot, such breathtaking views can be had over the outlying valley and towards the Mount Ventoux, it makes one realise that this is truly a place of great beauty. The terraces are planted out with Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan and in recent years are harvested and vinified seperatly giving us our new cuvée called… La Montagne !
