Côtes du Rhône Jardin Secret is a charming, easy to drink red wine made from 100 % Grenache grapes of 60-year-old vines from a single plot of only one hectare in the village Sablet. In the Rhône Valley it is tradition to use Grenahce grapes in blends with other varieties, and it is a pleasure to experience this fruity grape variety in its pureness. The producer is the renowned and highly respected family owned house Montirius, located in the municipality Beaumettes in the southern Rhône Valley in France, where the family Saurel makes organic and biodynamic wine with utmost respect for nature and biodiversity.

 

Côtes du Rhône Jardin Secret is ruby coloured with fresh aromas and flavours of red cherry, raspberry, vanilla, liquorice, herbs and mineral notes. The wine is round and elegant with a medium body, a vivid acidity and silky tannins. The finish is long and refreshing. Serve it slightly chilled at 14-16 ° C, with veal, pork and poultry, perhaps in casseroles for instance Coq au Vin or Basque Chicken. Vegetarian and tomato-based dishes are also a good pairing. The wine is ready to drink now, and will continue to develop in the bottle for another 5-8 years.

 

The house Montirius has been in the ownership of the Saurel family for five generations. The Saurel family cultivates 58 hectares of vineyards stretching into three different Rhône areas; Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Côtes du Rhône. Some of the vines are very old, for instance half of the vines in Gigondas were planted in 1925 by the ancestor Gaston Saurel. Today Eric and Christine Saurel run the business with excellent help of their three children Justine, Manon and Marius. The name Montirius is actually a combination of the three children’s names.

 

All the wines at Montirius, are fermented with native yeasts and exclusively matured in neutral concrete vats and sometimes stainless-steel tanks, to preserve and express the pure character and quality of the fruit. A concrete vat is a neutral vessel which doesn’t add any particular flavour to the wine, like for instance small oak barrels do. The Saurel family has a low-intervention approach to wine making, where every form for manipulation, additives and sulphites are banned. At the same time the wines are closely monitored with help of the newest technology and as such the family is always in control. Only the very best wine makers are able to produce high quality wines in this minimalistic manner. The family has received countless awards for their passionate work for biodiversity, but also for their actions on social responsibility as a company.

 

The ambition of Montirius, is to create authentic wines with a true sense of place. All the wines are produced with strict biodynamic methods and Montirius were the first producer to get certified biodynamic in Vacqueyras and Gigondas back in 1999.
