About Domaine Graveirette
This small 25-hectare Domaine is situated between Orange and Avignon in the Rhone valley to the West of Chateauneuf du Pape and with Mount Ventoux to the east. Julien Mas studied at Beaune in Burgundy before returning to the Rhone valley where he worked for a cooperative until 2005. This was the year that Julien started Domaine de La Graveirette. In 2012 Julien began working biodynamically, finally being certified with the 2015 vintage. Julien’s wines show a little more finesse than many wines from the Southern Rhone.
Red fruit focused, easy drinking Rhone red with soft and subtle tannins and a marked freshness. There is a floral element that gives this wine lift on the nose.
