history
The Amadieu family settled in Gigondas in 1929. Pierre Amadieu, grandfather of the current winemaker, whose name is also Pierre, started the business with a small estate in Gigondas. In 1954, he had the opportunity to buy 280 acres that was not planted with vines. He gradually turned it into a vineyard, starting at the top of the hill at a place called Domaine Grand Romane. Later he also planted vines halfway down the hill at the lieu-dit named La Machotte. With these two domains, Pierre Amadieu is now known as a leading AOC Gigondas producer both in quality and quantity.

Ripe and focused, with a plush wave of crushed plum and warm cassis notes, liberally infused with violet and incense accents. The finish shows a dark winey edge and a tug of iron. Best from 2020 through 2025.
