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.
Lovingly produced from Grenache, Syrah and Clairette grape varieties, it’s rose petal colour precedes a red and white bourquet highlighted with citrus notes: a well balanced crisp palate, full of freshness, with a subtle fruity finale. Beautifully presented in this unusual relief patterned glass bottle.
Works well on it’s own or partnered with fish, spicy foods and lamb. Enjoy over the next couple of years
