PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Domaine La Bouvaude is a small estate based in the village of Rousset-les-Vignes, situated in the north end of the southern Côtes du Rhone region. Its exceptional location near the renowned region of Châteauneuf-du-Pape has given the estate all of the raw materials to make great wines. Reverence for terroir is the guiding principle of owner Alain Blachon and vineyard managers Stéphane and Fabienne Barnaud; they see themselves as caretakers of the land and vines who guide rather than dominate the process of crafting wine.

Today's wine is made from 100% grenache harvested from 45-year-old vines planted in shale-based soils. Aged for 12 months in seasoned oak barrels, it has aromas of raspberries, blackberries, and brambly earth that follow on the medium-to-full-bodied, silky palate. Accents of savory herbs and a whiff of white pepper appear on the long finish; bright acidity keeps it all lively and fresh.
