Story

The story
As in cooking, we carefully select terroirs and grape varieties to best express the original flavours of each appellation in a fruity, expressive style with silky tannins. Each cuvée is enjoyable from the moment it is bottled. The final blending is carried out with Chefs Disciples d'Escoffier, so that each wine is associated with the world of gastronomy from the start.
Terroir
Nestled at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, Gigondas produces some marvellous wines. Our vines grow on steep terraces up to 400 metres in altitude.
Vinification
This cuvée is based on two criteria: respect for tradition and precision winemaking. Our cellarmaster has produced a powerful, complex wine exemplifying the magic of Gigondas.

"Deep, brilliant violet. Expansive dark berry, violet and licorice scents show very good clarity and pick up a smoky quality with aeration. Palate-coating blackberry, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors are energized by zesty spice and mineral qualities that build slowly on the back half. At once rich and energetic, with a long, juicy finish that's framed by supple, harmonious tannins." [+]

"The 2019 Gigondas Les Pierres Du Vallat is more modern styled and has some subtle background oak as well as notes of blue fruits, peppery herbs, and violets. Medium-bodied on the palate, it’s wonderfully textured and has silky tannins and a great finish."
