Domaine de l’Amauve

France

Christian and Monique Voeux operate their 10-hectare vineyard in Séguret, a village next to Gigondas and close to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Records show that the vineyard has been in the family’s possession since the days of the French Revolution. Christian is a well-respected oenologist in the area and has worked as head winemaker in some of the most renowned estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He understands that the foundation of any great wine is laid in the vineyard. Christian and Monique farm their land following sustainable and organic principles.

With its origins dating back to the arrival of the Romans in 125 BC, the Séguret vineyards were elevated to the Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages-Séguret level in 1967. It is Christian’s ambition to constantly improve the quality of his wines to help bring the vineyard up to the cru level of the neighbouring Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Wines

L'Amauve Rosé d'Yvonne · Profile

A lively, refreshing blend of 90% Black Grenache and 10% Syrah. As the wine opens up in the glass, it keeps revealing new layers of strawberry, raspberry, ripe pineapple, and nuances of jasmine. It has medium weight and the crisp acidity leads into a clean, pleasantly dry finish.

L'Amauve Rosé d'Yvonne · Pairing

A great summer sipper that also makes for a refreshing aperitif any time of the year. Ideal for picnics and barbecues. It pairs well with savoury appetizers, sushi, grilled poultry, and salmon.

L'Amauve Rouge La Vigne de Louis · Profile

The vines of Louis are planted in a vineyard that lies just outside the demarcated are of Séguret. Due to the proximity and the same care that is given to family’s vines in the Séguret vineyard, this beautifully balanced IGP Vaucluse delivers similar characteristics and a surprising depth. Aromas of black fruit and red cherry are complemented by hints of black pepper. Well integrated, ripe tannins lead into a long, pleasantly lingering finish. A beautiful harmony of the rustic warmth of a wine from the southern Rhône valley and the freshness of a young wine.

L'Amauve Rouge La Vigne de Louis · Pairing

A great choice with regional classics such as ratatouille. It works well with a charcuterie board of medium soft cheese, salamis, and black olive tapinade, all complemented by a fresh baguette. Nice with red sauce pasta dishes and barbecues.
