Pierre Amadieu Vacqueyras la Grangelière 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Bunches of Grenache and Syrah grown on chalk and clay soils are strictly sorted to produce this cuvée. Hand made harvests and traditional wine making process express a pleasant colour together with red and black fruits scents (blackberry, plum). A sweet touch of liquorice enhances the beautiful palate. A mouth filling wine in a pure Rhône style. To drink in its youth (2 years) or within 5 years on a grilled poultry, a roasted veal with an unctuous sauce.

Pierre Amadieu:
Our history begins in 1929 when my grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is then one of the firsts to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtains from 1932 a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris.I am presen... Read more
Our history begins in 1929 when my grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is then one of the firsts to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtains from 1932 a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris.I am presently on the head of the company and I am in charge of winemaking and maturing. I work with my uncle Claude who runs the vineyard. Together we follow the familial way of thinking by respecting soils and traditions in order to make you share wines faithful to the quality ambition of our grandfather and by adding a note of modernity in order to delight the most demanding and the most curious palates.I am not a follower of over-extracted wines and often "heavy" to taste ; my ambition is rather to obtain well-balanced wines with a Burgundy fineness. Through the maturing I try to reveal all the elegance and the richness of our protected terroirs located on the heights of the appellation Gigondas. From vines to the bottling patience and observation are required. Today appreciated all over the world, every vintage reserves its subtleties which I am happy to subject to your appreciation.

Black plum color purple in the glass. Definitely get some oak on the nose, also berry scents, some musky scents. Pleasant, medium bodied on the palate, but sensations change. Somewhat minty on the edge of the tongue. Sufficient tannin for me to like it, but nothing overwhelming. Bone dry, not a wine that makes you relate to any fruit. Looking forward to having this with a grilled flank steak, shortly. US$18.99 at Total Wine. 5/9/12 Amendment -- This wine really grew on me. It is a pretty subtle wine and was an excellent accompaniment to our evening meal. I am upgrading my rating from 3 glasses to 3-1/2.
