Available Now!

Alcohol: 13.5%

Grape(s): Grenache 29%, Mourvèdre 26%, Syrah 26%, Cinsault 19%

Localization: Provence, France

Tasting Notes: Delicate pink color. Strawberries and light pepper. Textured and fruity, with flavors of red plums, lemon zest, and raspberries.

Notes: Much of the estate’s vineyard terraces were replanted in the 1990s to improve clonal selection, vine density, and the mix of grape varieties. Soils are rich in gravel and limestone—part of the Triassic plateau of the Haut Pays—unusually mineral terroir for the region.

Food Pairing: Suitable for spicy foods as well as rich barbecue.

The Domain: High up in the hills of southern France, above the Côte d’Azur and the crowds at Cannes, you’ll find the cool, terraced vineyards of Domaine du Dragon. While much of Provence is a patchwork of different terroirs, this corner near the town of Draguignan is unique in that it is almost exclusively limestone, more commonly found in places like Burgundy. Cooling winds whip through the forested valleys to moderate the southern sun, so grapes are not only perfectly ripe but also balanced. This symbiosis of soil and sun results in richly flavored, elegant wines.
