Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby in color. Notes of mocha and clove. The attack is powerful with complex structure. Delicate on the finish.

About Ch. du Trignon:

Château du Trignon has been in the hands of the Roux family since 1896. For many years it was run by André Roux - he retired in 1987 and the property is now managed by his nephew, Pascal. The château and winery are located in Sablet, one of the most picturesque Côte du Rhône villages. It produces a wide variety of wines but is most renowned for its Gigondas.
