With soils bathed in sunshine most of the year the Vaucluse department in south east France was the Roman’s garden. The Domaine du Tix benefits from this sunshine but also from cool nights and abundant dew.
Its clay-limestone soil allows the traditional Rhône grape varieties – syrah, grenache, cinsault and viognier – to ripen fully. The Domaine du Tix vines, meticulously worked by hand, produce an exceptional fruit that, once vinified, fulfill all their promises.
Provençal Collective is pleased to offer the 2017 Domaine du Tix Grandes Pointes, 2013 Cuvee de Bramefan and 2017 La Femme Rouge to American palates for the first time.
Domaine du Tix 2018 Grandes Pointes Viognier
The flagship of this small estate, the Grandes Pointes 100% Viognier is fresh on the palate, captivating and exuberant with flower and white peach fragrances. It is the perfect compliment to salmon, vegetarian dishes or sushi when served at 50 to 54 degrees.
The Domaine du Tix “Des Bui/es au Cerveau”
Roughly translated it means “Bubbles in the Brain.” It is 100% cinsault which makes for an organic, light pink sparkling wine. The natural bubbles are generated by spontaneous fermentation without the addition of sulfites through a process called pétillant naturel or “Pet Nat.” It also has a bottle cap – not a cork or screw top. And the fun label is a conversation starter. Great with oysters!
Domaine du Tix 2018 La Femme Rouge
Owner Andre Tremblay has started a very unique project with his first bottling of La Femme Rouge. The 2017 La Femme Rouge is a 50% Grenache/50% Syrah blend dedicated to the spirit of Mary Magdalene and the storied legacy she left behind across Provence. Aged exclusively in clay jars for 15 months – much in the same way wine was produced in Mary Magdalene’s time – La Femme Rouge is a truly special wine that is a tribute to the patroness of vineyards and a treasure to behold for all historians and wine connoisseurs. It will be available this fall at Provençal Collective.
