Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The wine is made from 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah. Deep red garnet color. Aromas of ripe and black fruits. On the palate the wine is rich, powerful and harmonious - well balanced with wild berry and pepper dominating.

Critical Acclaim

"Along the same lines, the Alain Jaume 2012 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail is a mostly Grenache, with 20% Syrah, that’s aged 14 months in 20% barrels. Showing classic Gigondas spice, dried garrigue, saddle leather and blackberry and raspberry fruit, this medium to full-bodied Gigondas is loaded with Provencal character. Drink it over the coming 6-7 years. Drink now-2021."
