Domaine de Saje is a very young domain with very old roots. It was begun in 2015 by Jérôme Mathieu, who until then had worked alongside his brother André at Domaine Mathieu, which traces its roots to the 16th century. The Domaine was created as an amicable split of the family's vineyards between Jérôme and André when Jérôme's eldest son came of age.
The style here is traditional. The reds ferment spontaneously, aged in large concrete vats over the winter, and then are racked into old foudres (Jérôme eschews small barrels).
The 2018 is made "on the fruit," Jérôme says, and he’s not kidding. Super juicy and fresh, this could easily take a chill and be served at your next summer barbecue.
