Domaine le Garrigon Côtes du Rhône 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This is a fantastic, purely fruit-driven wine with supple black cherries and plum fruit riding atop notes of lavender, spice, and mineral. The tannins are subtle but present, making this ideal with meat-based fare.

Our grandfather started wine-making in Tulette (Drôme provençale) in 1919. Today, Garrigon Domain spreads over 200 acres (80 hectares) from Tulette to Visan. We make AOC, Côtes du Rhône as well as Rhône villages wines. The Mediterranean climate, marked by mistral, and the soil nature, clayed-calcareous or clayey-silt laden, with pebbly Rhône traces, are favourable to rich and heavy wine growing. The grape vine has been cultivated organically since 1997, without any yeast or enzyme, animal product, weed-killer, pesticide, thus respecting both nature and human-beings. We make our red wines by joining Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Carignan types of wine. As to our white wines, they are made out of Viognier, Ugni-blanc and Bourboulenc vine. The average yield, i.e. 40 hectolitre per hectare, as well as the average vine age (25 years), enables us to keep constant wine quality. The wine making remains traditional. Technical and tasting leaflets are at your disposal. Read less
