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.
This is a red wine with deep purple tints, strong colour intensity, very brilliant and limpid. A very complex and powerfull nose
of spices and blacks fruits flavors. After aeration, blackberries, blackcurrant aromas dominate with a tint of prune, cinnamon, cherries and undergrowth. The entry is powerful, tannins are again a little bit hard. This wine presents a big potential to be kept down. It would be necessary to open it 1 or 2 hours before the tasting.
