Domaine le Clos des Lumières is a 50 hectare family farm founded in 1946 by the grandfather of the domaine’s current vigneron, Gérald Serrano. The ambitious and talented Gérald Serrano is solely responsible for the recent “coming out” of this estate – Prior to taking things over in 2003 Gérald’s father was selling all grapes on the estate to the local cooperative.
Having grown up on the property, Gérald is intimately familiar with the terroir here. The oldest vines now edge 60 years in age and this land really seems to “pack the character in.” We’ve sold massive amounts of Rhone wine over the last forty years, and these are the most well-received Cotes du Rhone values we’ve carried in our history.
Cherry, blackcurrent, some spices and garrigue notes. The attack is fruit driven, dominated by cherry, the tannins are very gentle and well build in. Pleasant roundness and elegance on the finish. A blend of 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah, this monster is perfect for the 3.0L "Bag In Box" it comes in. I've purchased this in bottles for the past vintages but a 3.0L box with zero oxidation possibilities...means zero waste!
