Appellation d'origine protégée

The careful selection of terroirs with specific altitudes, climates and orientations gives to our Gigondas Laurus a complex balance between finesse and minerality, richness and spicy notes


Thanks to ideal weather conditions right up the harvest, the sanitary state of the grapes and yields were excellent. The 2015 vintage demonstrates remarkable potential and promises to be one of the finest vintages of the past few years. Harvest started on the 14th Sept. 2015.

Grenache grapes come from ancient gravelly terraces bording the Ouvèze river (Quaternary period) at the West of the appellation, giving strength, fruity and spicy notes. The Syrah grows on the "Pourra" sector, at the East of the appellation, on a soil of limestone and marl from the Cretaceous period, confering freshness and minerality
