The domaine is located in Saint Maurice-sur-Eygues in the southern Côtes-du-Rhône.
Built primarily from young-vines Syrah with a splash of Mourvèdre and tiny sprinklings of old Rhône varieties like Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Muscardin, and Counoise, "Energie" is vinified and aged in a combination of cement and steel tanks for one year with no added sulfur. The long but gentle infusion-method of extraction gives this wine great clarity of line, with pure, ringing acidity and a tasteful spiciness that speaks more of the Northern Rhône than the frequently coarse Syrah of these southerly zones; its name could hardly be more apt.
We like booze too
The name "Hibiki" means "resonance" in Japanese. Suntory Whisky Hibiki resonates with the subtleties of nature infused by the twenty-four seasons of Japan's traditional calendar and reflected in the twenty-four facets of its bottle's design.
Hibiki is a noble blend of numerous malt and grain whiskies from Suntory's globally acclaimed Yamazaki, Hakushu, and Chita distilleries. These whiskies are meticulously blended to create a sense of "wa"--a oneness which unveils a full orchestra of flavors and aroma.
