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.

A magnificent red color with deep purple accents. From the 1st nose, it reveals to us all its presence and its elegance. Its scent speaks to us of blackberries, blackcurrant and black cherries ripped under the sun of the Vaucluse. Then, after aeration, we discover more scented notes: fresher, slightly acid with touches of blueberries and plums. Its frank attack seduces us by its fond. The Tannins are delicate and melt themselves in the richness of the body of the wine. Its aromatic finale consists at first of spicy notes of nutmeg and clove, to then develop a subtle perfume of violets and of licorice.
