Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Gigondas Aux Lieux Dits will be a terrific wine, and I suspect it will end up being outstanding. Made from 75% Grenache, 13% Mourvèdre and the rest Syrah and Cinsault, from eight different terroirs in the appellation, it offers gorgeous notes of black cherries, spice and crushed flowers. Rich, medium to full-bodied and impeccably balanced, it will have a decade or more of longevity.

This cuvee reflects all our locations in Gigondas. It gets its character through the connection between eight different vineyards and four typical grape varieties of the Rhône Valley. Alluvial soils, red and blue clay, as well as marl lime, add to the taste and fragrance of this elegant and expressive wine as do the grape varieties of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Each terroir contributes to the overall picture with its character. Typically characterized by fresh fruit and noble, vegetal aromas in its youth, it usually develops a bouquet of exotic spices after a few years of bottle storage.

The vineyards are situated in 8 different localities of Gigondas (called "lieux-dits" in French). Thus the cuvee is called "from different localities" ("Aux Lieux-dits").

Hand picked and sorted, partly destemmed, natural yeasts, long maceration.

18 months in casks (foudres) and terracotta jars.

Food pairing

White beans, duck confit, garlic sausage and smoky streaked bacon.
