A center for wine production marrying “savoir-faire” and viti-vinicultural tradition

Maturity, generosity, balance

For many years, Nick has applied his carfted to the wines produced at l’Ameillaud.

Maturity, generosity and balance are a few of the key words to describe them.

The aromatic potential of the Rhône Valley grape varieties that compose the wines of the domain finds its natural expression through the fermentation process. The Grenache, Syrah and Carignan grapes complement themselves geniouesly to obtain this fruit expression along with a certain level of tannic support which allow them to mature well.

Grapes are hand picked in order to ensure the best quality of berries when they arrive at the cellar.

Although the vineyard constitutes a single holding surrounding the property’s buildings and cellar, the great diversity of type and subsoils lay the foundations to our different “cuvées”. The subsoil, an ancient sea-shelf, is essentially made-up of clay and limestone, but depending on the parcels, one finds marle, sandstome, marine molasse and silt.

The microclimate, specific to Cairanne, is mediterranean with hot dry summers and cool, damp winters. The dominant wind, the mistral, is a northerly wind blowing some 70 days per year. It often follows rain, drying the land and vines and offering the region one of the highest durations of sunshine in France. The red grape varieties are typical to the southern Rhône valley, Grenache, Carignan, Syrah.
