Region

D’Ouréa sits in an area covering the base and slopes of the first Dentelles de Montmirail foothills. The villages of Beaumes-de-Venise and Vacqueyras are located to the south and west of Gigondas respectively and enjoy very similar growing conditions. The terroir here is characterized by a hot, dry Mediterranean climate and by the combination of limestone soils (on the Montmirail slopes to the east) and rocky, sandy, free-draining soils (on the flatter, lower-lying land to the north and west).

Producer
Domaine d’Ouréa AOC Gigondas 2016
Adrien Roustan works with his fruit in whole bunches as much as possible.  After a light crush, ageing takes place in concrete tanks. Adrien's approach allows the pure fruit aromatics and complex site expressions to give these wines distinct character in the region. The wines are from high elevation sites and all have great lift, energy, and grace.
