About the Vineyard
In 1956, La Cave des Vignerons de Gigondas was created in the heart of the Gigondas region by a handful of winegrowers wishing to defend their identity and economic interests as winegrowers. They wanted to create a Gigondasian joint venture, of a size significant enough to professionally address the oenological and commercial issues related to the vinification, maturing and distribution of Gigondas wine. In this process, yesterday as today, there was, there is a fierce, militant desire to build our appellation from this land where we live, in the most active, authentic way possible, in order to develop with the other winegrowers a highly qualitative image of our wines from this exceptional terroir. Today, we are proud to offer you the wines around the Dentelles with the appellations: GIGONDAS, VACQUEYRAS, BEAUMES DE VENISE.
75% Grenache noir, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and Cinsault. The grapes come from the scrublands of Gigondas and from the hillsides of the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Beautiful garnet red color wine: glittery, finely weaved. Powerfull nose of undergrowth and candied fruits. After aeration, some marks of dry mushrooms, truffle, blacks olives, bread toast. The attack in mouth is soft. This Gigondas wine is well balanced. The finish is persistent with worn truffle retro-olfaction.
