Winery: Domaine La Mereuille is an old estate with more than two centuries of history in the Southern Rhone Valley. But as a vineyard, the estate is not that old.
In fact, prior to 1950, a good portion of the land was devoted to growing crops other than grapes for wine. Domaine la Mereuille produced their first wine in 1984. Domaine La Mereuille remains a family-owned winery as the third generation is now firmly in charge of managing the winery, headed by Michel Bouyer.
Age of the vine: 70 years
Ageing potential: 15+ years
Culinary Recommendation: To serve at 18 C. Good match with Mushroom, Cheese
