Domaine Notre Dame des Pallières is a very old family estate, whose name comes from a place of pilgrimage visited by the Provençal people in the middle ages who believed that the fountain on the property would protect them from the plague. Claude Roux and his cousin Jean-Pierre have practically lost count of how many vignerons have preceded them within their family, as antique writings suggest that this domain existed in the 900’s. Fortunately this tradition is continuing with Claude’s children, Isabelle and Julien, gradually taking over the day to day responsibilities of farming, production, and administration. This bottling is of vines in the Rasteau appellation, about 10k north of their home in Gigondas. It's a joyful, toothsome red that offers all the blackberry and spice we know and love of grenache. It feels right at home with lamb and any other red meats.
