The colour rejected by the appellation, therefore it is not Gigondas. 30% clairette brings an orange hue. This has bright strawberry and watermelon fruit aromas as well as gentle honey and lees influence. Terrific weight and crisp acidity. Drink now. ... More details

Vivid onion skin. Expressive, sharply delineated red berry and citrus fruit scents, along with an exotic hint of guava and building floral and mineral notes. Juicy, sharply focused and light on its feet, offering sappy tangerine, raspberry and vanilla flavors and a touch of honeysuckle. Smoothly plays power off delicacy and finishes very long and stony, displaying firm cut and lingering red fruit character. (Vinous)

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
