Terroir Daronton Gigondas Rhone French Red Wine 750 mL

$26.99

Love GRENACHE based wines?  Look no further! Inky, warm, soul-satisfying, and absolutely perfect fit for Rockwellian winter tableau – snow piling up on the windowsill, with a crackling fire, and a massive cauldron of hearty stew simmering away in the kitchen.

This is a new find for us, and WOW! Big fans already. Just LOADED with inky black fruits, like blackberry compote, mission figs, black plums…all with this classically spiced note of licorice, and star anise, black pepper, clove, cola roots, worn saddle leather – this is INTENSE! 

Description

The Gigondas appellation is naturally delimited by the Dentelles de Montmirail to the east and the upper plateaux of the Ouvèze River to the west. The rugged topography of the Dentelles, amazing limestone pyramids, protects the vines from excessive summer heat and the full force of the mistral. Our vines grow on steep terraces up to 400 metres in altitude.

This Cru Gigondas displays a fine balance between freshness and an impression of sweetness due to old Grenache vines planted at high altitude. The wine is big on the palate, with a dense texture of rich, ripe tannin. Its polished personality reflects a top-rate terroir.
