This strong, warm wine comes from a selection of grapes grown on an exceptional land in Southern Rhone. In fact, our vineyards in Gigondas are situated on the arid hills of the Dentelles de Montmirail.
The Mistral blows regularly on these slopes which limits the amount of treatment needed for the vines. The vines grow in stony fields, which is rare, and produce wine that can be kept easily for 10 yrs.
Aromas of pepper, red fruits, are intense and persistent; very interesting to discover young. Its robe is steady, stable, the tannins silky, some say feminine compared to the more rustic Vacqueyras
Food pairing: You can pair your next game recipe ( deer or wild boar) with the perfect glass of red Gigondas. This wine goes well with Reblochon, St Nectaire, and other strong cheeses. Serve at 18ºC
