Amadieu, Cairanne, Vieilles Vignes, 2017

Yves-Jean Houser is carving out a great reputation for his wines, from vines on the gentle slopes around Cairanne in the southern Rhône. This is from 40% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre with Syrah and Carignan, all bio-dynamically farmed and certified; about 15% goes into old barrels.

Raspberry and blackberry, attractive texture with fine tannins, a beautiful mouthfeel and persistence. Yves-Jean talks a lot about the quality of the tannins, and thinks it is the most important part of his work. The Syrah, from 225 litre barrels, brings black fruit and a good tannic frame. Perfect to serve on a cool night with a hearty beef or lamb casserole. Now-2024

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
