51% Grenache, 41% Syrah, 8% Mourvedre
Grenache from the "Montmirail" sector in the Southwest part of the appellation. This terroir, located at 200 meters in altitude, is mostly sandy marl from the Oligocene period. Syrah comes from the "Pourra" sector in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail at 400 meters of altitude on marl from the Cretaceous period covered with limestone scree, providing elegance and minerality.
"It’s deep ruby/purple color is followed by a rockstar bouquet of blackcurrants, black raspberries, camphor, dried garrigue, new leathers, and Provençal spices. With medium to full-bodied richness, a balanced, layered texture, and enough structure to benefit from short term cellaring, it’s a beautiful Gigondas that will evolve for 10-15 years." Jeb Dunnuck, October 2020
