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

Rated 91 by Vinous Media
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

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
