Product Description

"(60% grenache, 30% syrah and 10% mourvedre; no oak):  Vivid ruby.  Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of candied cherry, blackberry and incense, with a hint of star anise in the background.  Juicy and taut on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors that take on weight with air.  Finishes with gentle tannins, very good intensity and resonating florality."
92 Points Stephen Tanzer


The superb 2010 Gigondas exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with abundant notes of spring flowers, black raspberries, kirsch, crushed rocks and garrigue offered in a full-bodied, richly fruity, gorgeously textured and pure style. It represents elegance combined with substance and authority. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. 

"Proprietor Dominique Ay owns 45 acres in Gigondas. I have been a huge fan of his wines ever since the mid-1970s. The only cuvee he makes is a blend of 80% Grenache and the rest mostly Syrah with a touch of Mourvedre, all aged in old wood foudres. The average age of the vines is around 40 years."
