The Domaine Lombard estate was founded in 1981 by Jean-Marie and Sylvette Lombard, who contributed to the revival of the Brezème appellation after it was decimated by the Phylloxera outbreak, falling from 250 acres to just a few acres in the 1930s. In 2012, the Lombards retired and a new dynamic team led by Emmanuelle and Julien Montagnon took over the estate. With passion, commitment, and courage they replanted part of the vineyards, secured more land and finally built a brand new winery. The estate currently comprises 5 acres of Syrah and Viognier in Vin de Pays Drôme and 18 acres of mostly Syrah, with some Roussanne and Marsanne in Brezème. The vines are between 15 and 30 years old.
This wine is 90% Syrah, 10% Viognier, making it a supremely generous and indulgent wine. It has delicate tannins and a bouquet bursting with fruits and flowers. The ever-so-slightly salty and spicy finish implores you to take another sip.
