Domaine de Lambisque comprises of 65 acres of vineyards located in the areas of Bollène and Suze-la-Rousse in the northern Côtes-du-Rhône. The vines, planted on permeable soil, are located on a plateau of smooth pebbles (“galets roulés”). The Domaine's name comes from the Provençal word "Lambrusco", which means "wild vines", evidence that there were vines growing in the area in very ancient times.

This Domaine was acquired by the head of the Lambilly family in the 1940's and was then passed down to his grandchildren of the Mathieu de Vienne family. Today the Domaine is managed by Claire and her husband, Philippe d'Autume, a former naval officer who retrained to work in viticulture. When the couple decided to take over management of the Domaine, they turned to distant relatives, Catherine and Laurent Delaunay, for advice and assistance.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Delightful bouquet hints at spiciness and yet this is rather understated on the palate where cherry flavors are very much to the fore. Deep, fruity and well-balanced with a fresh hint of licorice. Light aging in oak adds a touch of complexity.
Vineyard Notes
The predominantly Mediterranean climate benefits from hot, very sunny days, and is balanced by seasonal rains and the influence of the Mistral Wind. The grape varieties permitted for this appellation are dominated by the Grenache (40% minimum).
