Passionate about her Domaine and wine-making, this quote below by Claire Clavel, really sums her up – “I want to make authentic wines that express well the local terroirs. I love sharing them with you. That’s wine: sharing, conviviality, gastronomy …”
Vineyards & Winemaking – St Gervais based on the western side of the Rhone sees a mix of clay, stony and sandy soils on a cool, windy plateau which give the wines notable qualities – expressive, an elegant lightness and smooth textures. She also follows strict sustainability practices.
Grapes – 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan, 10% Cinsault, 10% Marselan
Tasting note – Delightfully expressive notes of fresh red fruits wrapped with a nice touch of cocoa. The palate is soft and round, with aromas of fresh fruit. Long finish on silky tannins.
