A big and powerful wine typical of the appellation, with a backbone of dense black fruit, finely balanced with complex and savoury accents suggesting charcuterie and forest floor.
The 16 acres of Gigondas vines are located on 3 different soils : the main parcel is situated on steep mountainsides from the south side of the 'Dentelles de Montmirail', the two others are on the heights of the village and on the middle alluvial terraces.
