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 – 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah
Tasting note – The nose is expressive with candied fruits, sweet spices and touch of smokiness. The palate is round and concentrated, wrapped in silky tannins and a slight touch of wood.
