Domaine de la Combe au Mas
Peirardié - 2019 - Thomas Ayoun
Peirardié is a Provençal nickname given to the inhabitants of the commune of Mormoiron, which loosely translates as "pebblers". This is some generous, rich juice, balanced by a lovely acidity which gives it a delicious crisp sensation and a taste that keeps bringing you back.

Blend: 1/3 70-year-old Grenache, 1/3 Syrah and 1/3 Carignan, from vines farmed organically and planted on clay-limestone and pebble soils at the foot of Mont Ventoux, at 350 metres, on the south side. The grapes are picked by hand at maturity. Vinification: total destemming and co-fermentation of the three grape varieties, 20 days of maceration, and slow extraction by infusion, followed by two months of maturation in large, century-old, 2000- to 4000-litre terracotta amphorae, with just a microdose of sulphur at bottling.
Thomas Ayoun et Marie-Sophie Jullien
Thomas Ayoun and Marie-Sophie Jullien – sister of Thomas Jullien of Ferme Saint-Martin – have after five years of work given new life to the Ayoun family mas (the Provencal word for a traditional family farm) located at the foot of Mont Ventoux, 20 minutes east of Carpentras. And though 2019 was only their first vintage, the wine is redolent of talent – one of our discoveries of the year!...All wines
