Amadieu’s history begins in 1929 when the present family’s grand father decides to bottle and trade under the signature Pierre Amadieu his wine coming from the 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyard in Gigondas passed on by generation to generation. He is one of the first producers to print the name of the appellation on his bottles and obtained a golden medal in the National Agricultural Concours of Paris in 1932.Grouped together from La Machotte up to Romane, four type of soils imprint their personality and concentrate the aromas by naturally limited yields. Their terroirs are very well adapted to wines with a good aging capacity and the expression of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault (for rosé) and Clairette (for white wine) on these terroirs among the highest of the appellation, is very personalised and the wines are powerfully spiced. This Viognier is a Vin de Pays de Méditerranée (Méditérranée is an IGP title covering wines that are produced in a large area on the southeast coast of France, roughly corresponding to the Provence wine region but also includes a part of the Rhône Valley. The IGP shares its land with multiple AOC appellations as varied as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bandol and Côtes de Provence.)
Viognier, Pierre Amadieu
This fruit driven Viognier combines floral notes and fresh fruit aromas (peach, apricot) with a round and very fresh mouthfeel. Surprisingly crisp on the palate for a viognier yet still retaining the beautiful varietal character.
