Gerard and Marie-Claude Bonnet founded the estate of La Bastide Saint Dominique in 1976, and it now encompasses 27 hectares of vineyards. The winery and family’s house, which is an old 16th century chapel, is situated in the enclave of Courthezon, walking distance from the town of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Transparency and respect are the ultimate goals of the Bastide St. Dominique wines. They follow the principles of lutte raisonée (sustainable farming) and intervene as little as possible during the winemaking process. Eric believes the use of traditional farming and winemaking combined with the use of clean, modern equipment best elicit the elegance and minerality of their terroir. The husband and wife team of Eric and Julia are part of a young and exciting group of winemakers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, whose wines are challenging the more famous names of the region in quality.
What The Critics Say
91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
"The 2017 Ventoux Reserve Saint Dominique is a 100% Grenache, négociant bottling by this Châteauneuf-based producer, but it's seriously good juice. Raspberries, anise and black cherries provide ample complexity in this medium to full-bodied wine that's ripe, expansive and supple, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years." Drink 2018 - 2033
