Domaine des Girasols was established in 1974 when Paul and Marie-Elisabeth Joyet discovered this lesser known but beautiful area of the southern Rhône valley. They were immediately drawn to its terraces and steep hillsides and innately felt that this place was magical. The oldest vineyard dates back to 1914 and unfolds right in front of their front door…a daily reminder of their extraordinary site. This is a fabulous example of Côtes du Rhône with expressive fruit and some gentle spice. The cement tank ageing and soft maceration preserve the fruit making this a real everyday crowd pleaser.
RK Says "Many people love Côtes du Rhône for its appealing spicy notes and its extroverted personality. Domaine des Girasols produces one of the tastiest (and moreish) in one of the most beautiful locations in the southern Rhône."
