Domaine Saladin

Saint-Marcel-d'Ardèche - Rhône Valley

Domaine Saladin is a real family business, the historical archives testifies of the roots of the Saladin domaine in 1422 ! 

Since then, 21 generations of the family have kept the tradition alive, and the estate is now under the hands of the Saladin sisters - Elisabeth and Marie Laurence.

Located in the small village of Saint Marcel d’Ardèche, a cross road between Provence and the Rhone Valley, the estate is composed of 18 hectares of 40 years old vines of the myriad of great grape varieties of the region (13 in total!), in both red and white. 

The entire vineyards have always been biologically farmed, in total harmony with the soil, the climatic conditions and the terroir with a master skill in picking at maturity. 

Domaine Saladin in the bottle

Per El Côtes du Rhône Blanc

“Per El” means “For her” in old patois, and was created by Louis Saladin in the 1980s for his wife, Annick. This is the only white made by the domaine, blending 6 different grapes : Clairettes, Roussanne, Marsanne, Bourboulenc, Viognier and Grenache Rose. It is a natural wine, with only indigenous yeast, aged in stainless steel vats to retain all the freshness. 

Paul Côtes du Rhône Rouge

The parcel takes its name from the great old uncle of the family - Paul, and these vines are the oldest of the domaine. Made of 90% Grenache and 10% Clairette, they benefit from an ideal South exposure, and will spend 9 months in old oak barrels.

Fan dé Lune Côtes du Rhône Villages Saint Andéol Rouge

The blend is composed of a majority of Mourvèdre, Grenache Noir and Syrah, coming from 40 years old vines. The vineyard is located on terrasses, biologically farmed with no use of chemicals. Special note for the care for each grape :  a later picking of the Mourvèdre, semi-carbonic maceration for the Grenache and longer vinification time for the Syrah. Aged in old foudre for 9 months.

Haut Brissan 

Haut Brissan is an historical parcel of the family domaine located on the highest hill of the village. Made of 100% old Grenache Noire, with semi-carbonic maceration in whole bunches and indigenous yeasts in concrete vats, with no use ever of chemicals from the vineyard to the bottle. The sisters decided to declassify the wine in 2006, to have more flexibility in terms of vinification and ageing.
