Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre
75cl * 14.5% ABV * Rhône Valley
Gigondas was once used to augment Burgundy that lacked stuffing, but that all changed with the introduction of the Appellation Contrôlée system in 1936, which prohibited cross-departmental blending. Here, the classic blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre is aged in barrel for 14 months to add a touch of vanilla to this silky, cherry-tinged red. Gigondas that lives up to its Latin name jocunditas - ‘exuberant pleasure’. Drink to 2028.
