Domaine des Capes, AOC Gigondas, Rouge, 2018


The wine
Owned by the Daniel family since 1753, the estate is located in the Dentelles de Montmirail at an altitude of 300 metres. The vineyard has a fine terroir that protects the vines from disease and guarantees pure, natural wine. The Daniel family knows a thing or two about viticulture since they have been growing vines for generations. Their wine is powerful and generous.
This Gigondas is grown on clay-limestone soil that accounts for its personnality.
The greatest of care has been taken in making this Gigondas, combining the best of traditional and modern methods. In charge of perpetuating the estate’s identity, our cellarmaster ferments the juice in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to preserve its fruity aromas.
The wine is then aged for 8-10 months to add aromatic complexity and intensity.
Grenache noir : 76%
Syrah : 24%

It is ideal with lamb, beef and stewed vegetables.


"Tasted blind. Bramble fruit that is slightly beset by a little reductive compression on the nose, but has much better expression on the palate. Simple, balanced palate with moderate length. More fruit than spice."
