"In a quiet part of the Rhone Valley appellation of Lirac, Veronique Lombardo of Chateau Le Devoy Martine crafts understated and complex wines on her 4th generation family owned domaine. With 40 hectares of land, Veronique strives to keep the character of vineyard in the bottle from her gravelly clay soils mixed with some limestone. Very few oak barrels are used in her wines; our notes are highlighted by notes such as "tangy", "expressive" and "packed with fruit". The entire range of wines show restraint and subtle layering of flavors that are good indicators of the vintage and the terroir that she cultivates.

Chateau Le Devoy Martine's Cotes du Rhone is an elegant rendition on a red wine from this sunny corner of France. Notes of red fruits, strawberries and forest floor make it a great accompaniment to grilled chicken, pizza or an aged goat cheese."
