Grapes varieties: Grenache 60% & Syrah 40% In this cuvee, we use one of the oldest parcels of Syrah planted in Gigondas by my grand father in the 60's. Some of the Grenache vines are more than 60 years old also planted by my grand father. Terroir: Limestone and red soil. Yield: The yield at Gigondas is 35 Hl per hectare, one of the lowest in France. Vinification: Our wines are cultivated and vinified in the traditional way and the grapes are harvested by hand, carefully sorted but destemmed.The maceration with the skins lasts 30 to 35 days in order to extract maximum concentration and aromas. Our Gigondas in not fined or filtered. Aging: This cuvee is a selection of grapes from old vines. Only several parcels of Grenache, some being over 60 years of age, are used in the making of this noble wine. The ageing is done in tanks essentially, in order to enhance the unique and profound character of the soil and grape varieties used, making this a wine of exception.
