Domaine Boisson, Côtes du Rhône 2019
Although Domaine Boisson was created in the 1850s, the first wine was only bottled there in 1986. The estate changed gear in 1999 with the return, after his studies in Burgundy and winemaking experience in the Barossa Valley, of Bruno, the current generation of the Boisson family. Today the domaine totals 34 hectares, 32 of which are in Cairanne and Côtes du Rhône parcels and the remaining two hectares on the neighbouring Massif d’Uchaux. The farming is minimal intervention; light ploughings for soil aeration and weed control as well as grass cover in the more fertile plots. To accentuate the fruit quality of wines, Bruno de-stems the grapes and ferments mainly in tank with extraction achieved by pump overs and déléstage. He only uses indigenous yeasts and likes to keep the temperatures low in order to further emphasise the fruit. Only 5% of the wine are matured in barrel. All vineyards are undergoing organic transition.
