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.

Herbaceous tones of sun-ripened bramble and bursts of blackberry and blueberry preserves introduce this bold, fruity Grenache-Syrah blend vinified entirely in stainless steel. Ready to drink immediately, this mouthfilling sip finishes on hints of charred vanilla bean, lavender and soft, silky tannins.
