Duo des Achaux refers to the duo of grape varieties of grenache and syrah, grown in Domaine Gris des Bauries’ estate vineyards. A complex mix of flavors that include nuances of spicebox, violet, laurel and strawberry. A generous, yet suave Rhône red.

Domaine Gris des Bauries was created in 2007 by two couples: Patrick & Gina Cordet along with Claire-Lise & Charles Wyplosz, who collectively share a great passion for wine. Based in the village of Taulignan in the southern Rhône Valley, this small team does everything themselves (with occasional help for bringing in the harvest), mostly by hand, and while carrying out their other “day” jobs. They favor a low-tech, authentic and natural approach, as they do not wish to “override” what nature gives them each vintage. Each parcel is tended to separately and farmed organically.
