"Founded in 1927, Domaine Isle Saint Pierre is located on a small island in the Rhone River. It is run today by fourth generation vigneron Julien Henry.
The proximity to the water provides a cooling influence that allows the wines to retain great freshness even in the far south of France, and deep well-draining sedimentary soils comprised of sand and silt.
Because of the terroir and temperature, they are able to grow varietals that thrive in a Continental climate, such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
In 2018, the estate received the Vignerons Developpement Durable certification in recognition of their commitment to sustainable winegrowing.
Although the Isle Saint Pierre wines come from the very southern stretches of France, they display wonderful freshness and aromatic appeal. At harvest, as soon as the grapes enter the cellar, they are cooled to a temperature below 16°C.
Domaine Isle Saint Pierre is our answer to lively, easy-drinking "bistro-style" wines that are perfect for everyday drinking!" - Importer
This wine has an attractively pale, brilliant rose-petal colour and an elegant, airy nose with red berries and fresh fruit. On the palate, it is open and fruity taste, with a full body and a certain smoothness. The saline terroir brings a hint of iodine.
