Antoine spearheaded the resurrection of this nearly lost varietal back in the ’90s. Today his son Antoine-Marie is leading the way on its path to the pantheon of noble grapes, now that the vines are a bit older and the domaine has more experience with the varietal under its belt.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
