Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 67% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre and 1% Cinsault.

Aged for twelve months : 70 % in 1 to 4 years old barrels - 15 % in wooden vats – 15% in concrete vats. The dry summer of 2007 gives us a magnificent intensity and precision in the wine. They remind me of 2005 for their balance and their freshness. They gained plenty of density during the ageing and they offer the wide range of aromas.

"The 2007 Gigondas Tradition possesses extravagant blackberry and cassis fruit, deep, full-bodied flavors, and even more power, structure, and depth than the 2006. With fresh acidity as well as remarkable aromatic penetration, it should provide pleasure for 15 or more years." 91-93 Points

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and very suave, with gorgeous toast and Black Forest cake aromas leading the way for mulled fig, boysenberry and kirsch flavors. The long, rich finish is well-detailed, with blazing minerality stretching it out. Drink now through 2020."
