RHôNE


The love and compliment Robert Parker gave to Rhône in the past decade had uplifted the fame of this region globally. Rhône wine region is situated in southern France and is named because of the Rhône River Valley. It has a long wine making history, the first cultivated vines were probably planted around 600 BC. And after Pape Clement V moved to Avignon, with the wealth and passion of the church, Rhône's wine production expanded greatly, so as its importance in French wine. Due to the fame and history, Châteauneuf-du-Pape therefore became the first AOC region in 1936. 

Rhône is divided into two sub-regions with distinct vinicultural traditions. The northern sub-region produces red wines from the dominant Syrah grape, sometimes blended with Viognier for co-fermentation, and white wines from Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier grapes; whereas to the south it frequently plays second fiddle to other varieties, such as Grenache or Mourvèdre, which synergize as the iconic Grenache - Syrah - Mourvèdre blend.

About Domaine des Bousquets

THE PETIT CHÂTEAUNEUF DE PAPE 

Gigondas is another rising star in the Rhône village appellations just like Rasteau, Vacqueyras and Cairanne in the past decade. Domaine Des Bousquets is found to be one of the earlist domaine producing wines in Gigondas. The estate is 26 hectares in total. Grenache is the primary variety with small percentages of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. The estate is farmed sustainably which is not difficult given the gentle climate in the shadow of Mont-Ventoux. The vineyards are tended by hand including harvesting. The grapes are destemmed when they reach the entrance of the recently build subterranean cellar. Fermentation and maceration occurs in stainless steel tanks and the wine is aged in barriques, demi-muids and concrete tanks.

The wines are bottled on the estate in a single operation to help ensure consistency. Then maturing, that will often last for several years, starts in the underground aging cellar, until the wine is ready to be served at the best dining tables.
