AOP GIGONDAS ROUGE
Southern Rhone Valley – France
Alluvial terraces with stony red-clay soils.
Harvest & vinification
Grapes are harvested at optimum maturity with a meticulous sorting. Separate traditional vinifications are conducted for each grape variety. Alcoholic fermentation occurs at 26-28°C with a tree weeks’ maceration period. Wines are partly aged in barrels and half-muids.
Grenache – Syrah – Mourvèdre
A deep intense ruby colour. An open and very expressive nose of candied black berries and hints of leather and blond tobacco. The mouth is powerful with a noticeable tannic structure. The elegant acidity brings to the wine the required fresher finish.
Wine & food matching
Perfect match for a roasted pigeon with mushrooms.
Serve at 15-17°C.
Best enjoyed between 5 to 7 years of age.
