"Made from 70% Viognier and 30% Grenache, 25% of which are vinified in demi muids - lovely and fresh, a great white from one of our favourite Rhone producers. Oh, and they are organic too! #savingtheworld"
Domaine de l’Espigouette has now become an impeccable source of delicious wines which offer very good value. Rendements are kept low, 30-39hl/ha, and they have some 32 hectares including 1.5 hectares in Gigondas. A big temperature controlled chai was finished just in time for the 2012 vintage which his enables them to have a single bottling for each wine and then to store in perfect conditions. The average age of the vines is not less than 40 years old. Vinification is traditional, in a mix of a little stainless steel and cement vats. Elevage is then in foudres. You simply are not going to get better Cotes du Rhones from anyone else.
