2016 AMIDO "SIGNARGUES" COTES DU RHONE VILLAGES
Domaine Amido has just over five hectares of vines in the village of Signargues, about half a dozen kilometers south of Tavel. The soil resembles that of Lirac, with galets roulets and clay, and the vineyards have a southern exposure. The Cotes du Rhone Villages comes from the village of Signargues (about five miles from Lirac) and is such a great value, with tons of forward fruit, soft, well-integrated tannin and plenty of up-front drinkability. The wine is made with 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, and aged in tank. It is forward and fruity, yet with and underlying seriousness that helps it to resemble the more expensive Lirac.
Christian Amido founded this domaine and completely renovated the chai, installed a new press and replaced the cement tanks with stainless steel. Domaine Amido is now run by Christian's daughter Nathalie. Her son-in-law, Antoine Berthaud, is the winemaker. They own vines in Tavel and Lirac.
