Signargues is a special place -- the southernmost vineyards of any in the Côtes du Rhône Villages. (In 736, it was also the scene of an epic battle between the troops of Charles Martel and the Saracens, then occupying the South of France. “Sign” refers to the blood (”Sang”) shed during the invasions, while “Argues” was the Roman settlement’s name. This spot used to be Rhone riverbed: millennia ago, the Rhone deposited smooth-rolled pebbles, reddened by iron oxide. Amido’s version is as good as it gets, full-fruited and more-ish; an all-organic wine that beats many a Gigondas at twice the price.
