This is a hugely underrated area producing top quality wines – buy now, before everyone else finds out! The grapes are harvested at the beginning of October, trodden in the traditional way, and, after a cuvaison of 18 days and regular remontage, the wine is put into foudres. No filtration, nor fining, from the vineyard where strictly organic practices are observed to the sympathetic treatment in the winery, this is southern Rhone red at its purest.
Rich, spicy mix of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsault. A little hint of oak gives a wine with brambly, warm spicy fruit and a long, warming finish.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“The Clos du Joncuas Gigondas rouge 2004, pure Grenache, was lovely, balanced and satisfying. It would go perfectly with game dishes, at far less cost than many classified Burgundies.” – Bonjourparis.com
