This wine comes from a family-owned estate in Lirac, a quiet region in the Rhône Valley. Véronique Lombardo, the fourth-generation owner and winemaker of Château le Devoy Martine, makes elegant and complex wines that reflect the terroir of her 40-hectare vineyard. The soil is a mix of clay, gravel and limestone, which gives the wine a smooth and velvety texture. Véronique uses very little oak in her winemaking, and ferments each of the four grape varieties separately in concrete tanks to preserve their purity. She then blends them to create a balanced and expressive wine that showcases the vintage and the region.
Lirac is located across the river from, but has a different soil composition that makes its wines more approachable and silky. Château le Devoy Martine's wine has the rich and ripe fruit flavors that are typical of the Southern Rhône, but with a restrained and subtle style that makes it easy to drink and enjoy.
