AOP Côtes-du-Rhône

Le Clos des Saumanes 2020

€610 Flacon de 10cl

Here we have a wine for you with superb balance. This lemon coloured Côtes-du-Rhône white reveals a fresh nose with floral aromas of broom, fennel and garrigue that bring the Mediterranean to mind. On the palate, this wine is off-dry with a good touch of vivacity and very nice structure. Lovely fruity flavours lead into a very pleasant bitterness in the finish.

Winemaker

Robert Janer

Lying amid vineyards dating from the 13th-century, Clos des Saumanes is an entirely walled vineyard of 25 hecatres, surrounded by Mediterranean garrigue, broom and boxwood. The vineyard is cultivated by Martine and Robert Janer who practice sustainable winegrowing with low, controlled yields. They are driven by the desire to care for this place that they love so much and to grow beautiful grapes from it to produce original, ‘pleasure’ wines.
