Winemaker's Notes

The Gigondas is produced from a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 8% Cinsault and 2% other varieties. It is a robust, full-bodied, generous wine and exhibits plenty of fruit and spice. Without doubt one of the finest producers in the southern Rhône.

"Full, deep red. A coulis of dark berries on the nose, with pepper and medicinal nuances. A supple, sweet midweight whose ripe acids give it excellent balance. Enticing berry and mineral flavors. Finishes with ripe tannins and noteworthy persistence. Rather stylish Gigondas."
-International Wine Cellar
