An altitude domain in the south. Superb site which dominates the Rhône valley, with a breathtaking view of the Dentelles de Montmirail, Mont Ventoux, the Vaucluse mountains, the Lubéron, the Alpilles... The terroir is composed of small terraces on hillsides, on mixed soil, stony and/or marly scree, heckled, complex, some of which date back to the Triassic period (120 million years ago) between 400 and 600m above sea level.
Half of the vines are white grapes from viognier with a little Roussanne.
The reds are in AOC Beaumes de Venise.
It was almost 25 years ago that my parents Jacques and Nathalie Wallut left Paris to settle in the small town of Suzette, which they had discovered some twenty years earlier.
Active and creative, they founded the Domaine Saint Amant by buying vines on the right and left and replanting viognier, the emblematic Condrieu grape variety to which my father dedicated a fetishist cult.
They are accompanied in this process by a renowned oenologist from Chateauneuf du Pape: Noël Rabot.
From 0 hectares in 1990, the estate has grown to 13 hectares in 2015, including 5.5 hectares planted with viognier. The
modern cellar, buried, equipped with a cooling unit, and where the grapes are encuvés by gravity, was built in 1995, and the first vintages were created that year.
You have to start selling.... The
whole family started to work on it, and that's when I got a taste for the complex - but oh so satisfying - winegrower's job.
In 2002, I became its manager. The foot!
Life outdoors in a superb setting after 10 years in NYC is changing and not to displease me!
What I appreciate most is the variety of work: in the vineyards, in the cellar, for sale - but no, not the administrative side! Every year is different and no two are alike and that's great!
The encounters in the wine world are all equally rich: professional and individual; I like the interest, curiosity and emotion that a glass of wine can arouse!
The specificity of high-altitude wines: The balance is different from that of the plain, more round than powerful. The wines are gourmet, easy to drink, easy to digest, you can easily return to them... At the same time, they age very well.
