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.
Tasting notes
A shiny gold colour, lot of roundness on the palate combined with a perfectly balanced ending composed by scents of Muscat, litchis, mango, pear and citrus fruits. The persistency in mouth is really fresh.
Food pairing
Appreciate it as an aperitif, foie gras and its fig compote. Fruity desserts will also match with this fresh and very aromatic Muscat wine.
