Domaine de l'Amauve
|Appellation:||Côtes du Rhone|
Christian Voeux spent 24 years as the Maître de Chais (cellar master) at Château Mont-Redon in Châteauneuf du Pape. In 2008 Christian left Mont-Redon to run Château La Nerthe, another highly respected producer in Châteauneuf du Pape. He is now applying his vast experience to his own boutique Domaine de l’Amauve vineyard in Séguret which he inherited from his parents.
Séguret is a village built into the side of a steep limestone cliff. The vineyards flow down the hillsides to a gravely plateau. The terroir is a mix of limestone from the hillside above, with alluvial gravel, sand and clay, sitting on the limestone bedrock.
