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 "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.

On the nose, black currant, raspberries fragrances together with a hint of violet are very typical of Syrah wines. Delicate, the mouth is silky but powerful showing red fruits notes, tannins are round and soft. The colour is deep and the alcohol content is low, moving to truffles and mushroom aromas after few years.
