    Winemaker Notes

    The noble wines of Pesquier are a result of a meticulous respect for tradition. R. Boutiere and his son invite you to taste their fine Gigondas and Cotes du Rhone wines everyday of the week. A blend of 75 percent Grenache with 15 percent Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault.

    Domaine du Pesquier is a family owned wine estate for four generations, situated in the heart of the Gigondas appellation. The history of its vineyards goes as far back as 1556, when they belonged to the Princes of Orange.

    The actual estate was created in the 1950s, producing olive oil as well. After the strong frosts of 1956, destroying almost all olive groves, Domaine du Pesquier was restructured. The vineyards and the wine became an important part of it, but it was only in 1971, when Gigondas obtained its proper AOC status, that wine became the leading product of the domaine.

    Raymond Boutiere started selling the first Cuvee of the domaine in 1965, still under a Côtes du Rhône Villages label; together with his son Guy, he's the one who gives a real incentive for the development of the estate.

    Nowadays, Guy and Mathieu Boutiere cultivate some 24 hectares of vines (17 hectares in AOP Gigondas, 1 hectare in AOP Vacqueyras, 2 hectares in AOP Côtes du Rhône, 4 hectares in Vin de Pays de Vaucluse), respecting terroirs and traditions. They only produce red wines.

    The Southern Rhone region of Gigondas extends northwest from the notably jagged wall of mountains called the Dentelles di Montmirail, whose highest point climbs to about 2,600 feet. The region and its wines have much in common with the neighboring Chateauneuf-du-Pape except that the vineyards of Gigondas exist at higher elevation and its soils, comprised mainly of crumbled limestone from the Dentelles, often produce a more dense and robust Grenache-based red wine.

    The region has a history of fine winemaking, extending back to Roman times. But by the 20th century, Gigondas was merely lumped into the less distinct zone of Côtes du Rhône Villages. However, it was first among these satellite villages to earn its own appellation, which occurred in 1971.

    Gigondas reds must be between 50 to 100% Grenache with Syrah and Mourvèdre comprising the bulk of the remainder of the blend. They tend express rustic flavors and aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry, fig, plum, as well as juniper, dried herbs, anise, smoke and river rock. The best are bold but balanced, and finish with impressively sexy and velvety tannins.

    The Gigondas appellation also produces rosé but no white wines.
