Winemaker Notes

Located in the town of Gigondas "Jugunda" La Ferme du Mont selected , even within one of the oldest areas of the appellation, two different and complementary terroirs composed of Grenache and Syrah, with the sole objective to offer a revealing wine both the strength of this terroir and elegance of Grenache altitude.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Along the same lines stylistically, the 2012 Gigondas Cotes Jugunda will require more patience. The same blend and elevage as the 2011, it is loaded with big black fruits, pepper, earth, graphite and minerality as well as hints of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, structured and tannic, yet with a stacked mid-palate and excellent overall concentration, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and have 12-15 years or longevity.
Range: 91-93+

An endless passion for the best Grenache grapes. An authentic and dynamic place. 50 hectares of old vines are cultivated on the estate incorporating several AOC’s. Additional long term partnerships with growers on selected terroirs, e.g. fermage. Location offering unique terroir and climate. A dedicated team driven by the love of Fine Wines.

Our vines grow in a completely natural environment in harmony with Provencal vegetation. The vines are tended all year long with the sole aim of producing top quality fruits. No chemicals or pesticides are used (other than in the case of disease). We believe that Fine Wine can only be produced from top quality grapes.

The Southern Rhone region of Gigondas extends northwest from the notably jagged wall of mountains called the Dentelles di Montmirail, whose highest point climbs to about 2,600 feet. The region and its wines have much in common with the neighboring Chateauneuf-du-Pape except that the vineyards of Gigondas exist at higher elevation and its soils, comprised mainly of crumbled limestone from the Dentelles, often produce a more dense and robust Grenache-based red wine.

The region has a history of fine winemaking, extending back to Roman times. But by the 20th century, Gigondas was merely lumped into the less distinct zone of Côtes du Rhône Villages. However, it was first among these satellite villages to earn its own appellation, which occurred in 1971.

Gigondas reds must be between 50 to 100% Grenache with Syrah and Mourvèdre comprising the bulk of the remainder of the blend. They tend express rustic flavors and aromas of wild blackberry, raspberry, fig, plum, as well as juniper, dried herbs, anise, smoke and river rock. The best are bold but balanced, and finish with impressively sexy and velvety tannins.

The Gigondas appellation also produces rosé but no white wines.
