Clairette de Die is a fruity, light and sweet sparkling wine made in the Rhône Valley with the grape Muscat following the traditionnal Méthode Dioise. It is the same used for the spumante d'Asti on the other side of the Alps which is a méthode traditionnelle. The Clairette de Die has less alcohol (only 8%).
This wine has a beautiful deep ruby colour and has a powerful fruity, floral nose. The attack is frank and lively when the wine is young, after a few years it offers a variety of candied fruits with a velvety finish.
Intense purple colour. On the nose, notes of red berries (blackberry, blackcurrant). Spicy notes, a touch of vanilla and persistent aromas of forest fruits in the mouth.
Grenache noir 70%, Mourvèdre 30%
“Wonderful blend of syrah, carignan and grenache with a reddish-black colour. (…) flawless structure with a light wood aroma (…) garrigue, peppermint and fresh, acidulous blackberry soften the strong tannins. With Marie-Pierre Iché’s personal touch, the baron becomes a prince.” (Guide Hachette 2017, vin remarquable)
50% Carignan, 40% Grenache noir, 10% Syrah
This famous white, which is both dry and fruity, surprises by its subtle white fruit aromas and seductive hints of honey and acacia giving it an elegant finish.
"Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Bastor-Lamontagne opens with provocative lemon marmalade, musk perfume and orange blossoms scents with hints of fresh ginger and spice cake.

„Mixed berries and stone fruit, hints of garrigue and crushed stone all swirl together, buoyed by supple tannins and a lush, creamy mouthfeel.” WA 89-91 (The Wine Advocate | 236)
60% Syrah, 25% Carignan, 15% Grenache
Dark colour, bouquet of raspberry, blackcurrant and cherry. Fruity taste with soft tannins, pleasant finish. Aged in oak barrels, 100% Merlot (old vines).
Small, elegant and lasting bubbles, flowery and fruity nose with notes of ripe apricots and mirabelles, a lively and refreshing attack with subtle hints of peach. In the mouth it is ample and rich with a lingering racy and refreshing taste.
The fruity nose is typical of a Chardonnay which reached a perfect maturity. The pearl is extremely fine and smooth and the acidity barely perceptible. This Champagne is a real pleasure in ths mouth and especially stands out because of its lack of bitterness. A really good price/quality ratio.
