About the Winery:

Domaine la Florane represents three generations of vignerons, two terroirs, but one same family spirit. Originally Domaine la Florance was the name for the wines made from vines in Visan, on land handed down by the family of Marie-Pierre Fabre.

The vines in Saint-Maurice, meanwhile, bore the name of  Domaine de l’Échevin. Guillaume de Rouville, a family ancestor who was mayor of Lyon in 1586, owned land in the Rhône Valley, back when silk ruled supreme. He inspired the name Domaine de l’Échevin, created by François Fabre in the 1990s.

In 2001, the family’s two estates began using the same, specially-built cellar, but each estate kept its name. Then in 2019, they were united at last under one name.

The cuvée names are unchanged: Échevin  and Guillaume de Rouville  are still used for the wines from the Saint-Maurice appellation. 

Wines are made by Adrien Fabre (partner of Claire Michel of Le Vieux Donjon in Châteauneuf-du-Pape). Organic and Biodynamic farming on clay soils.

About this Wine:

Cherry red and highly approachable, this wine has perfect balance. A seductive cuvée at any hour, packed with ripe fruit underlaid by supple rounded tannins. Best enjoyed at room temperature or slightly cooler.

Ratings & Reviews

89 Points - Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Cotes du Rhone Villages Visan A Fleur de Pampre is a mouthwatering blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan, all vinified in stainless steel and aged in concrete. Black raspberries and black olives mingle easily on the nose, followed by a medium-bodied palate framed by silky tannins and a juicy, vibrant finish. It should make for fun, casual drinking over the next 4-5 years." - JC (Nov 2020)
