Overview

Appellation: Gigondas A.C., Sourtern Rhone, France

It’s full bodied, and as they like to say ‘hedonistic’, with a slurpable, slippery texture and firm, slightly sandy, tannins. It’s a lusty wine that Grenache fanciers should find pretty hard to resist.

Expert Reviews

...captivating, with fig and hoisin sauce aromas and flavors backed by a riveting graphite note...black tea, licorice snap and perfumy edge of the appellation all lingering through the velvety, lengthy finish.Rating 94 - Wine Spectator

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and Cinsault.

Aroma/Palate

...built on a striking expression of fruit and Garrigue. The mouth is all softness, glittering with delicate shades and subtleties.

Vintage Condition

Wet and challenging conditions led up to the end of spring before a remarkably dry summer. Formidable sunshine and a sustained wind cleansed the Vineyards before harvest began an exceptionally long 120 days after flowering. The wines shows a subtle balance between fruit, crispness, and finesse of the tannins providing the indication of a keeping vintage. The aromatic profiles are complex, powerful, without a hint of over ripeness. Less imposing than in 2005, but amply sufficient, the most striking feature of 2007 is the purity of perfect fruit.
