2008 Domaine de la Ferme Saint Martin "Saint Martin" Beaumes de Venise Rouge

SKU #1060139

Domaine de la Ferme Saint-Martin is a small domaine located in the Cotes du Rhone appellation of Beaumes de Venise. Vigneron Guy Jullien farms approximately 22 hectares of vineyards of several parcels spread across the appellations of Beaumes de Venise and Cote de Ventoux. Guy deeply believes in making wine that is respectful of both the soil and nature. For this reason, yields are kept low, and he tends to his vines organically. The cuvée Saint Martin is composed of 90% grenache and 10% syrah from 45-90 year old vines grown on argilo-calcaire soils. Only indigenous yeasts are used, and the wine is bottled fined and unfiltered. 14% abv.

This wine is 90% grenache, but the 10% of syrah really seems to drive this baby. Packed to the brim with black pepper and dark fruits, you might think you were drinking Cote Rotie. Lovely.

Chewy, spicy, rich red fruit. That's what southern Rhone grenache (when it's good) is supposed to be about, and that's what this bottle shows. There is plenty to like here now, though I would personally set this one aside for several years for some more development. Nevertheless, if there were some stewed beef or lamb on the table, I would not likely turn this wine down.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
