History

LaMarasque : The name of a quality cherry, with acidity, renown for the making of Marasquin liqueur. A tribute to the unique cherry liqueur flavor of the cuvée. The village Gigondas received its ‘cru’ status in 1971, one of only nine villages in the Southern Rhône to do so. Located between Orange and the Mont Ventoux the appellation spreads over the south-west facing hillsides of the “Dentelles de Montmirail”, and its surrounding dales. Sand and blue marls are covered with white stones which increase sun exposure. The intensity of the latter develops the richness of tannins and polyphenols. This asset is crucial to the area as the vineyards can reach an altitude of 400m, which often means a late maturation of the berries.
