The Domaine

Domaine des Jeanne was formed when Welshman Lord Mervyn Davies of Abersoch was introduced to winemaker Alexandre Samour, whilst sourcing the perfect rosé for his daughter’s wedding in 2011.

The Vineyard in Oppède, in the Luberon region of Provence, is situated between the mountains and the sea, close to the legendary wine-producing commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

The domaine’s first harvest was in 2012, releasing their first rosé in 2013, named ‘Jeanne’ after his Mervyn’s wife and Alex’s daughter. Jeanne appropriately means ‘divine gift’, and represents the importance of family to both founders.

The Wine

Lovingly produced from grenache, syrah and clairette grape varieties, its rose petal colour precedes a red and white fruit bouquet highlighted with citrus notes; a well-balanced crisp palate, full of freshness, with a subtle fruity finale.

 

This wine works well on its own or partnered with fish, spicy foods and lamb. Enjoy over the next couple of years.

Product Information

Wine Enthusiast.
“Aresti Winery is a family-owned winery that was founded in 1951 by Vicente Aresti and his father-in-law Alfredo López. Originally known as Bellavista Estate, Aresti believed that the Curico Valley was the ideal place for his vineyards. Over the years the family purchased new land throughout Chile to plant their Aresti Vineyards. By 1999, the brand name and label had switched over to Aresti and a state of the art cellar and bottling plant was constructed. The new winery also included an underground, climate controlled barrel room to house up to 2,000 barrels according to our Aresti wine reviews. Aresti wines are available in 5 different lines from their value Estate Selection to their top tier Family Collection red blend. Nine different grape varieties are used to produce the various wines in the Aresti portfolio, however it is their Limited Release and Family Collection Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenere blends that tend to find the top of our Aresti wine ratings.”
