Description

Two brothers, Patrick and Vincent Soard, own and operate this impeccable Domaine the cellars of which are situated in the village of Beaumes de Venise, in the shadows of Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail. They trace their lineage as vignerons back to their great-grandfather, Casimir Soard, whose wines were winning medals as early as 1902. In 1988, Patrick and Vincent, with the encouragement of their mother, Nicole, decided to renew the fame of the estate and constructed the chai and cellars necessary to vinify and bottle the full range of appellations available. The vineyards of the Domaine are scattered over seven different communes, including, of course, Beaumes de Venise and the surrounding villages. The Soard family has always farmed with great concern for the environment and now all of the wines produced at the Domaine are certified “organic”.

The vineyards in Beaumes de Venise are situated on the massif of the Dentelles de Montmirail and much of the vineyard surface is laid out in terraces to accommodate the steep slope of the hill. The soil is clay and limestone and the “encépagement” is 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Harvest and vinification is done parcel-by-parcel and the final blend is done after a long cuvaison designed to obtain the finest and most profound extracts. The wine is bottled unfiltered after eleven months of aging in cement cuves.

Enticing aromas of blackberry, strawberry, violets and toasted oak. The full body red starts with flavors of strawberry and black current, and develop into tobacco, clove, cinnamon and thyme with a hint of black pepper and cedar. The bold and grippy tannins finish slightly on the softer side, while still creating enough structure to hold up to lamb or steak.

Blend: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre
