Côtes du Rhône

Domaine Grand Romane

Terroir

Produced from our oldest Clairette vines planted in 1955 at an altitude of 300 meters, this wine is a genuine rarity. The soil is made of alternating Cretaceous limestone and marl, with a northwest exposure.

Winemaking

Vines are hand picked towards the end of September, pressed and vinified in barrels including 30% new oak. This cuvée is then stirred and aged on fine lees for 9 months.

Tasting notes

The nose let discover subtle aromas of pear and apple, with acacia flower notes. On the palate, intriguing flavours of grapefruit and lemon and a satisfying roundness, with a delicate and lively finish.
