Owner-winemaker Adrian Fabre actually runs two wineries—Domaine de l'Echevin is his father's family estate, while Domaine Florane is his mother's. Both are run along biodynamic principles and turn out some of the best wines in the Côtes du Rhône Villages. Basically, Florane is in Visan and l'Echevin is in Saint Maurice. The vineyards sit approximately 300 and 400 meters above sea level, which may contribute to the freshness found consistently throughout the wines."
Guillaume de Rouville Rouge is a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Grenache. The harvest is partially destemmed and crushed in its entirety, then vatted by gravity. Half is raised in a small tun and the other half in demi-muids. The wine itself is the only master of the duration of its aging, on average fifteen months.
