Speech of the ambassador

Gigondas achieved Cru status in 1971. With the lowest annual yield in France of only 36 hecto-litres per hectare, the association of noble varietals such as Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mourvedre helps produce a very delicate palette of Gigondas wines.

My degustation note:

A wine that presents itself very youthful despite a maturity of over 15 years.
Ripe berries fruit notes, cassis, spicy with red peppers, chilly and an elegant vanilla note. Endless final with enamel, depth and a maturing potential of at least 5 more years.

Fin!

 

Thank you Babsi Wanner / Organize Communication Team for invitation and friendship! 🙂
