Tasting

The 2020 Gigondas Sainte-Catherine is more focused and elegant, with medium-bodied richness as well as a supple, layered, seamless mouthfeel. Giving up fresh black fruits, garrigue, and peppery notes, it has fine tannins, integrated acidity, and outstanding length. It’s another classy wine from this team. Jeb Dunnuck – March 2023.

Food & wine pairings

Enjoy with grilled red meats or warming mountain dishes.

Detailed information

Vintage

Throughout the year, the planets were perfectly aligned: no frost, winter rains to replenish the soil and a generous summer sunshine without excessive heat. These ideal climatic conditons resulted in very healthy grapes and an excellent sanitary state. A remarkable 2020 vintage as much by the quality of the berries as by the duration of the harvest ! (8 weeks)
