Domaine de l'Amauve
The Domaine de l'Amauve is an eleven-hectares family business located on the territory of the commune of Séguret.
The productions of the domaine are primarily red and white wines from the appellations “Côtes du Rhône” and “Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret” , and then, only in red some “Vin de Pays” and “Vin de Table”.
With the Domaine de l'Amauve, the signature of the vine grower is present everywhere, through the mode of control of the vineyard, the methods of wine making, the work and the ageing of the wines. Everything is done at every moment to work out a wine of great quality in the respect of nature and the environment.
The vineis cultivated according to the rules of reasoned agriculture. The treatments of the vine are limited, and when some are done, it is always with the useful minimal amount of chemicals. The crop is naturally small and can be controlled by doing some green harvest if necessary.
The origin of the name of the property comes from the flower of mauve which plants are present in great number in the vineyard during the spring and which give off discrete floral flavours and cheer up the landscape with their soft colours.
The Domaine de l'Amauve is property of two old Provençales families and it has been so for several generations. These families were united by Aline and Louis's wedding in 1952. This wedding was the basis of the property.
One of the children, Christian, a oenologist and winemaker in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, has decided, to run the property after the late retirement of his parents (Aline was 74 and Louis 81 in 2005).
However, passion helped, in addition to the culture of the vine, he has decided to make his own wine and market it himself in order to share more closely the marvellous soil of Séguret.
