history
Domaine Riere Cadene is a family winery nested between Mediterranean Sea and Pyrenees Moutains, in a Region called Roussillon. Since 1904, from father to son, they use the same traditional skills and perpetuate their precious understanding of the wine. They are committed to producing high quality wine that reflect their great Terroir, in a sustainable way (ongoing conversion to organic farming). Here many years ago, a family of winegrowers began cultivating two exceptionally distinctive terroirs, with the accent on freshness, elegance, and attention to detail and the story never ended.

2019
Made identically to its companion L'Orri bottling, but based on Mourvèdre instead of Carignan, the 2019 Côtes du Roussillon Les Murettes offers up more aromatic, floral notes and redder fruit. It's medium-bodied, with a delicate tension between ripeness and acidity, wonderfully silky tannins and substantially more elegance on the ênish.
