A family run property owned by Pascal and
Marie-Pierre Maillet, Domaine de la Berthète sits in the southern
Côtes du Rhône appellation at the foot of the Dentelles de
Montmirail in the Plaine du Plan de Dieu.
The estate stretches for around 48 hectares and is mostly
composed of sufficiently old vines on a clay-limestone soil that it
produces fruity and aromatic wines that are still full and robust.
Planted with Grenache 45%, Syrah 30%, Cinsault 5% and Carignan 20%,
the vineyard work is now carried out following the principles of
reasoned viticulture with the utmost respect for the environment
and harvesting is done mainly by hand with de-stemming of the
grapes. The vinification is of traditional type with vatting going
from 8 to 15 days under controlled temperatures. Bottling is done
at the property.
