Rivesaltes Ambré Domaine Domaine Gardies, Espira de l'Agly 2004
Domaine Domaine Gardies, Espira de l'Agly
Jean Gardies owns great vineyards on the chalky-clay soils of Vingrau and the black schist of Espira de l’Agly above Perpignan. One of the great French producers, he is quietly making wines representing his identity and interpretation of his terroir. Mixing tradition and modern styling, his wines have great intensity and definition with strong personality. The whites have lovely mineral touches whilst the reds have all the Roussillon power; balanced by freshness and classic mineral character.
This Rivesaltes Ambré is a wonder of natural sweet wine marrying with pleasure the white grenache and the small grain muscat. An emanation of superbly honeyed yellow fruits embellished with scents of orange peel fills the senses. The mouth is divine, balanced and very long!
Grapes: 100% Grenache Blanc. 6% Muscat à Petit Grain
