The Domaine des Pasquiers is located in the heart of the Rhone valley and is today led by the third generation of the Lambert family, the brothers Jean-Claude and Philippe. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are the main grapes of the area and the Lambert brothers always pay close attention to harvesting and vinifying them separately. The wines of this domaine are every year refined, balanced and powerful. Since 2010 the vineyards are conducted according to organic farming. The vineyards are located near the slopes of Sablet, which lend themselves well to these varietals; the soil is a mixture of sand and clay, which keeps the plants cool and ensures grapes are well ripened. These vines are also pruned to be low-yielding, which at 33hl/ha is well below the average for the region.
The Domaine des Pasquiers Cotes du Rhone is a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah. This Cotes du Rhone has bright cherry and black fruits balanced by a lovely freshness with a satisfying, smooth finish. Certified organic since 2013. some of their vines are very old, 40 years of age. Really juicy wine, elegant and fruity.
