Grignan-les-Adhémar Rouge, Secret de Terroir, Domaine de Montine 2019
Red Wine from France - Rhone
From a region of the Rhône once known as Tricastin, and famous for its truffles, this is the sort of deliciously quaffable red that could accompany a simple dish of sausage and mash, with or without truffle! And 2019 was an exceptional vintage too.

Domaine de Montine
Grignan les Adhémar is the new name for Tricastin and Domaine de Montine is one of the best-known names here. A family business, just outside Grignan, this has well-placed vines and makes wine in all three colours. Why buy from here? The answer is freshness. This part of the Rhône is almost at an intermediary stage between north and south. The syrah grape works well here as do all the whites, ripening without undue haste, and the wines are inexpensive and quality on the way up.
The domaine was established in 1933 when Albert Monteillet bought the land and is now run by Melina Monteillet, the fourth generation to take the reins. Surrounded by lavender fields she farms without using chemicals, either pesticides or herbicides, and all fertilisers are organic. The soil is chalk and light clay, and work in the vineyards is all done by hand so each vine gets individual attention and green harvesting lowers yields before the ripe grapes are harvested at night for maximum freshness.
