A local favorite, this blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussane and Viognier is a stellar value.
Aromatic and flavorful, this blend is a delicious blend of several grapes. Fruity and fresh, it sees a fair amount of sur lees barrel aging which creates a plush texture. An ideal match for rich fish or chicken dishes as well as nutty cheeses. 35% Grenache Blanc, 35% Viognier, 15% Roussane, and 15% Marsanne.
"The Domaine de Piaugier is situated in the village of Sablet, in the southern Rhône valley.
Jean-Marc Autran, whose father and grandfather before him were wine growers, and his wife, Sophie, cultivate 30 hectares of vines in Sablet and Gigondas.
From vinification right through to bottling, the wines are made in the cellars built by Jean-Marc’s great-grandfather in 1947.
The dominant grape variety is the traditional Grenache, with complimentary plantings of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Carignan for the reds and Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussane and Viognier for the white wine.
