Description

The Gigondas Vieux Clocher is pressed from hillsides grapes that received an exceptional sunlight. Its deep purple color extends a nose of black fruits that may appear restrained in its youth, but which after a few years of cellar will develop all its complexity, developing then notes of undergroth and spice. All the nose intensity is also found in outh on an intense and generous background with elegant masculine tannins. The incomparable bouquet will only improve as this wine ages over the years.

Estate

"Since 1717, the cultivation of the vine is perpetuated in our family. This tradition and this heritage has become a passion. Even today, we produce our wines in the greatest respect for ancestral traditions, to be able to offer and you return all the authentic flavors of our land. The homestead covers 40 hectares on the plateau Garrigues, a plateau to the west of the appellation, and extends to Chateauneuf du Pape. These soils are prone to low yields of highly concentrated grapes tannins and aromas."
