Further Details

Located just 8km from Chateauneuf du Pape, the appellation of Gigondas is geographically very diverse and benefits from cool air from the Dentelles de Montmirail. Grenache reigns supreme here, especially on the sandy soils that gives it unique elegance and aromas of cherries, chocolate and blackberries. The wine is complemented by Syrah that brings spice, violet and smoky flavours to the blend.

Jancis Robinson MW 16/20 - "Amazingly sweet and open and almost soft! Very polished ... lots of pleasure."

Wine Advocate 88-91/100 - "Notes of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, liquorice and truffles ... should age for 10-12 years."

International Wine Cellar 90-92/100 - "Heady, seductively perfumed scents of raspberry and cherry preserves, dried lavender and spicecake. Bright, forceful red and dark berry and floral pastille flavours are given spine by tangy acidity, with silky tannins providing further support."
