Domaine Notre Dame des Pallières is an incredibly old family estate, whose name comes from a place of pilgrimage visited by the Provençal people in the middle ages who believed that the fountain on the property would protect them from the plague.
Claude Roux and his cousin Jean-Pierre have so many generations of Gigondas wine making experience in their family that they do not know exactly how many of their relatives have been involved up to now – Antique writings suggest that this Domain existed in the 900’s. Fortunately, this tradition is continuing with Claude’s children, Isabelle and Julien, gradually taking over the day-to-day responsibilities of farming, production, and administration.
Vineyard holdings total 74 acres in Gigondas, Sablet, and Cotes du Rhone.
When asked about their methods they smile and explain that they are simply following the traditional methods of the family members that came before them.
Taste: This wine has a purple color, a beautiful intensity, with some amber highlights. The nose is intense, marked by notes of black fruits and spices accompanied by some notes of mocha. The palate is full-bodied, round, the tannins are melted, we note a good length on notes of ripe fruit.
