Montirius Wine Tasting, Vignoble Bio-Dynamique -
Montirius is the impeccable fifth-generation estate of the Saurel family, a leading producer of Vacqueyras and Gigondas wines in the southern Rhone Valley.
The Saurels make a range of deeply scented and flavored wines imbued with Provences spice and structure. These are sensual wines with unusual finesse, possessing penetrating minerality and length.
Montirius is a sizable 55 hectare estate that for the last 15 years Christine and Eric Saurel have taken their domaine in an organic direction, converting to biodynamics in 1996.
