Winemaker Notes

One of the domaine's "Flagship" wines, evoking the Mediterranean in aroma and taste. It perfectly expresses the terroir treasure of Pézenas and embodies the Domaine's style of balance, elegance and complexity.

Wine & Spirits
John Goelet's Languedoc project in Pezenas produced a deeply savory red in '08, a blend of 60 percent syrah backed with 35 percent mourvedre and a little grenache. It's dark and gritty, more about spice, earth and bitter chocolate than and ready fruit. It lasts, firm, wanting only a lamb chop to absorb the little heat in the finish.

Domaine de Nizas
Domaine de Nizas is the new winemaking collaboration from John Goelet and Bernard Portet, co-founders in 1972 of Clos du Val in Napa Valley, California. John Goelet is also the owner of Taltarni Vineyards (Victoria, Australia) and Clover Hill (Tasmania).

On a manually tended 200 acre vineyard, they've created handcrafted limited-production wines since 1998. Their goal is to serve as a model in terms of elegance, complexity, balance and aging ability among Mediterranean wines.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular and age-worthy wines at its best. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
