- Cellar 5 - 6 years (2021-2022)
- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Cork
Opaque black red colour with a bright crimson purple hue. Meaty scorched earth top notes are intermixed with aromas of black cherries, subtle liquorice and graphite. Medium bodied with good richness and a restrained meaty textural feel, the palates initial flavours of black cherries and liquorice are overlaid by dried meats and earth with touches of leather and pepper on the finish. Dry chewy tannins with an aftertaste of black cherries, earth, dried meats, leather and blackpepper. A rustic style of Gigondas.
Cellar 5-6 years.
More firm and structured than the Vacqueyras (which is to be expected), the 2013 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes offers up an array of toasted spice, graphite, licorice and sweet black raspberry fruit. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, firm, structured and focused Gigondas that has enough tannic grip to warrant short-term cellaring. Nevertheless, it has impressive concentration and is a rock-solid effort that will have 10-12 years of longevity.

Bright violet color. Heady, spice-laced aromas of ripe dark berries and cherry, with a suave floral overtone. Fleshy and broad on entry, then more taut in the middle, offering sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of lavender pastille. Silky tannins sneak up slowly on the finish, which lingers with outstanding clarity and spicy tenacity. This wine was made entirely with whole clusters.
