Le Pas de Montmirail, AOC Gigondas, Rouge, 2019

‘Tasty wines for tasty moments’, that’s what the Rhonéa signature range stands for.


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.
The terroirs that produce our Gigondas consist mainly of limestone soil with a clay subsoil, which accounts for the wine’s rich character.
All grape bunches are destemmed and the wine is fermented traditionally with temperature control and pigeage (punching down the cap). The wine is stays on the skins in vat for 15 days.
Alcohol content: 15 ABV

Best decanted and enjoyed at 16-18°C. Enjoyable young, but will improve for 5-8 years.
Tasting notes
Light garnet color with purple reflections. Floral nose with notes of dried flowers, roses, peonies. In the mouth, it is smooth and fresh. A satiny structure, a lacey touch cohabit with a beautifully intense aromatic concentration. One finds with pleasure the noble flowers, some sweet spices, fruits macerated in alcohol but without excess heat. A balance on greediness and distinction. Open 1 hour before serving at around 16°C.

Food and wine pairings
This satin mouth feel, let's respect it for the harmony. Confit of beef chuck and baker's apple, for the fondant, the smooth texture. Duck parmentier with hazelnut flakes for the play of textures. For the vegans: veggie cannelloni, spinach, oyster mushrooms, tomato and tofu. Complexity in this dish, but a soft texture: all the ingredients for a love marriage!


"Another outstanding wine, the 2019 Gigondas Le Pas De Montmirail has a more earthy, darker fruited style as well as classic Gigondas peppery herbs and spice. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and just nicely put together on the palate, I’d be happy to drink a bottle."
"Dark magenta. Musky dark berries, cherry and succulent herbs on the spice-inflected nose. [...] A floral note appears on the nicely persistent finish."
