Domaine des Espiers
Domaine des espiers
Domaine des Espiers was founded in 1989 by Philippe Cartoux, who followed in the footsteps of his grandparents, by continuing the winery which was run by the same family since 1879.
Today Domaine des Espiers has 9.5 hectares of vineyards, of which 3 hectares Gigondas,2,5 hectares Sablet and 4 hectares in the appellation Cotes du Rhone. The vines of the Domaine des Espiers consists mainly of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The vines do not undergo chemical treatments, and the soils are mechanically weeded. So this is obviously an organically ran domain. Low yields per hectare, a high density of vines (5400 vines per hectare) and a manual green harvest provide robust and fine wines and are also refined with a complex aromatic composition.
