One of our most popular listings, this wine is made from 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Carignane and 10% Cinsault grapes from St. Nazaire, in the valley of the Rhône river region. It is very dry with rich, earthy fruit flavors of plum and cherry accented by hints of black pepper and sweet cedar.
Pairing : Enjoy this wine with lasagna or barbecue.
Domaine des Cèdres is located in a small commune in France's Southern Rhône Valley. Often called a "Blessed Region," the Rhône Valley is in a climate that is ideal for grape growing. The vineyard features several plots on hillsides which have a stony, clayey and calcareous soil which are friendly to vines and little else. The stones absorb the hot summer sun and then reflect warmth onto the vines at night. The climate is mediterranean, although the Mistral, a cold northerly wind that can endure for days on end, is a feature of the Southern Rhône. The dry Mistral winds, however, minimize vine disease and dry out the vineyard if hit with summer rains.
Domaine des Cèdres winemaker, Dominique Pons, is a true pioneer of organic viticulture. He has been into organic winemaking for at least 20 years, and was one of the first in the Côtes-du-Rhône AOC to go organic. In addition, he's been studying and applying the principles of Biodynamic farming at Domaine des Cèdres for several years, and is involved with the Mouvement de Culture Biodynamique. Like Dominique, the wines of Domaine des Cèdres are open and generous.
Great food wine! It's strong in character and reflects the region - sun-filled, deep in color and redolent of flowers, herbs and spices.
Very dry, with rich, earthy fruit flavors of plum and cherry enhanced by hints of black pepper and oak spice.
