WA 92 : Medium-bodied and balanced 2013 that shows the cooler style of the vintage in its peppery, violet, mineral and red and black fruit aromas and flavors. Elegant and finesse-driven, with lively acidity and solid ripeness.

At the end of the 19th Century, Gratien Mayard was hesitating about leaving for the United States after the phylloxera crisis; but the love affair with his native land proved too overpowering. Replanting his vineyard vine by vine, he played his part in making his successors the proud owners of a leading domaine (estate). Today the Mayard family and its team take care of running and modernising the domaine.

The vineyard covers 43 hectares of vines that include two large plots: a 21-hectare area situated south of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation, at Grand Coulet, and an 8-hectare area located to the east, on the famous Crau plateau. The entire estate covers around thirty parcels of land spread across highly diverse terroirs, some of them planted over a century ago.
