Brilliant magenta. Assertive red/blue fruit, potpourri and succulent herb aromas are sharpened by a spicy suggestion of white pepper. Sappy, subtly sweet and penetrating in the mouth, offering intense raspberry, black cherry and boysenberry flavors that show an intriguingly light touch. Distinctly elegant in style, showing excellent delineation and spice- and floral-driven tenacity on its gently tannic finish. ... More details

Leading off the Gigondas releases, the 2018 Gigondas La Gille offers a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless style that’s very much in the style of the vintage. Plenty of spice, flowers, strawberries, and blueberry notes all emerge from this glass and it has light tannins, terrific balance, and beautiful length on the finish.

For the 2018 Gigondas La Gille, the focus is on mid-slope sites with sandy topsoils and limestone underneath. There are some pretty herbal tea shadings on the nose, followed up by cherries on the palate. It's full-bodied and silky but firm, ending on a dusting of dried spices and star anise.

Region: Rhone Valley

For over two thousand years, the southern French region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers and wineries of many different types. The ancient Greeks were the first to discover that a wide range of grape varietals can flourish in the rich soils and micro-climates which typify the region, and little has changed to this day. In the modern age, the Rhone Valley is recognized around the world as the home of excellent quality white, red and rosé wines, as well as some of the most highly respected blended wines on earth. The region is split into two distinctive sub-regions, with the cooler, continental northern sub-region producing primarily Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines of exquisite quality, and the hotter southern sub-region growing a much wider variety of grapes.

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.
