Gigondas Grand Vin
The vines of our Grand Vin are mostly planted on the North-Eastern part of the appellation between 250 to 400 m of altitude. Grenache is the dominating grape variety side by side with syrah and mourvèdre. A good concentration of the wine comes naturally with a yield at about 40 hl/ha.
The grapes are hand harvested and carefully destemmed before a long maceration – all this contributes to a perfect extraction of the grape’s ripe components. We chose a partial ageing in foudres (big oak barrels) and tanks. Bottling will take place after 12 months of ageing. The bottles are corked with high quality natural corks.
The nose makes you think of the hills in Gigondas: pin, rosemary, thyme, dry grass between limestone pebbles… Then comes a round of liquorice, myrtle and blackcurrant with notes of cacao and smoke. The palate opens discretely, then becomes more and more powerful and finishes with a great length.
Open this bottle on a nice piece of beef with pepper, a piece of game such as a pheasant with truffles, or a shoulder of lamb.
