Tasting Notes:

This feels regal and old-fashioned in the best way, a gruff, gravelly Gigondas made charming by its subdued fruit and sweet earthiness. Two years in oak foudres - half of them new - has added a brown-sugar richness to the fruit; any cherry notes have been incorporated fully, turning the flavors toward roast meat. Firm and savory, this is a pleasure to drink now, and it's sure to age well over the next decade.

Marcel Guigal selects wines from small domains to produce a blend which is true to the appellation, yet polished, refined, and capable of aging many years. It offers among the best price/quality ratio of the Guigal portfolio. Gigondas is a perfect accompaniment to all hearty fare.

The vineyards of Gigondas are planted on hillsides at the foot of Mont Ventoux, directly north-east of the town of Orange in the southern Rhône Valley.
