Domaine de Piaugier, Sablet, Vallees du Rhone
Grenache, Mourvedre & Syrah. Jean-Marc Autran – whose father & grandfather before him were wine growers – and his wife Sophie cultivate 30 hectares of vines in Sablet & Gigondas. The 40-year vines are manually harvested in whole bunches, then spend one month in tank. 70% is aged in concrete with 20% in one-season-old oak barriques and 10% in new oak barriques. Bottling is without filtration. This is a robust, well-balanced aromatic wine with licorice, red fruits & spice; a savvy alternative to the expensive Chateauneuf du Pape.
