AOC Beaumes de Venises, "Grangeneuve" -Domaine Saint Amant
Grangeneuve’s grapes are harvested at the top of the red AOC Beaumes de Venise, above the village of Suzette, high up at 1500′ on 10 acres of small, windy terraces. The soil is a mix of marl and limestone from the Trias era. The 90yearsold grenache, 50yearsold carignan and syrah are blend together with white viognier right from the beginning of the fermentation, after destemming and crushing.
“Dark colour tinged with ruby. Suggestions of wild plants, liquorice, animal smokiness and stone fruits on the nose. The oak is more upfront on the palate yet does not obscure the wine’s Mediterranean characters. Powerfulness enhances aroma.” 90/100 – Gilbert & Gaillard 2019
