Andre Mathieu is a master craftsman and one of the rare growers in the region who uses all of the 13 authorised grape varieties of the appellation. Grapes are from 70-year-old vines, grown in 58 different, small plots, using natural, sustainable, wild viticulture and traditional vinification methods practiced by their family since the 16th century. Hand harvested with grape selection on table, long maceration and maturation for 12 months in old oak barrels.
In the glass
Gorgeous ruby colour with expressive violet, red berry and spice aromas. An elegant, structured, powerful and complex palate packed with wild red berry fruits, plums and a hint of star anise, chocolate, mocha and spice. Long, complex finish with round tannins and wonderful mouth feel. A true authentic example of this well-known Rhone appellation.
