Domaine Pierre Amadieu, Gigondas Romane Machotte Anniversaire 90 Ans (2016)
Brand Domaine Pierre Amadieu
The Amadieu family settled in Gigondas in 1929. Pierre Amadieu, grandfather of the current winemaker, whose name is also Pierre, started the business with a small estate in Gigondas. In 1954, he had the opportunity to buy 280 acres that was not planted with vines. He gradually turned it into a vineyard, starting at the top of the hill at a place called Domaine Grand Romane. Later he also planted vines halfway down the hill at a place named Domaine La Machotte.
With these two domains, Pierre Amadieu is now known as a leading AOC Gigondas producer both in quality and quantity.
Aromatic spices, together with red and black berry fragrances, linger on the palate, culminating in a fine mineral finish.
