2019 - Grenache, Clos Saumanes "Les Sarments d'Hippocrate"
It’s after a career of pharmacist and surgeon in Champagne that Martine and Robert Janer have decided 10 years ago to land in Châteauneuf de Gadagne. They fell in love with a piece of land and decided to renovate the winery and restructure the vineyard : Clos des Saumanes was born! Today, the vineyard covers 25 ha (one plot) and is surrounded of trees and old vines that grow in a see of round pebbles. Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault are the main grape varieties on the property. Exceptional terroir with mistral (name of the local wind), sun and deep soils (big pebbles in sandy clay). Perfect conditions to make organic wines, low yield of exquisite grapes are the starting point of the wines produced here.
« Les Sarments d’Hippocrate is a reference to our previous life. Its freshness and aromas of fresh fruits creates conviviality .»
