Pasquiers Sablet Bottle image

Domaine des Pasquiers is run by the two brothers, Jean Claude and Philippe Lambert and was established in 1935 by their grandfather. The brothers have been joined by Philippe’s son Mathieu. The Domaine cultivates 90 hectares of vineyards across several appellations: 40ha of Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu, 25 ha of Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet; 25 ha of Côtes du Rhône & IGP and 1ha of Gigondas (1,1).

Jean Claude and Philippe took over from their father in 1999 when all the fermented wine was sold to negociants. They started to bottle their own wine in 2002 and have steadily increased in the amount of wine matured and bottled at the Domaine such that less than half the production is now sold to negociants.

The vineyards were certified Organic in 2013.

All the wines (except the cuveé L’Envy) are fermented and matured in concrete vats in the traditional way demonstrating the characteristics of their diverse terroir.. The Plan de Dieu reveals the grippy tannins of the stone covered soils and the Sablet exudes the silky finesse of its sandy soils. The Gigondas is less typical of the appellation in that the blend contains a high (50%) proportion of Syrah. The Plan de Dieu l’Envy is a selection of the their Plan de Dieu vats which is then aged in for 12 months in 225 litre barrels (“barriques”).
