The Gigondas wines were classified 'Cru du Cotes du Rhone' in 1971. The Gigondas Vieux Clocher comes from vines grown on slopes which are exceptionally sunny. The complex smells of cooked ripe fruits may seem closed in its youth, but with a few years of laying down, it will have reached its full complexity with hints of underwood and spices. In the mouth the finesse of its tannins offers a velvety generous bouquet which is unbeatable. It will get better with time to become a much sought after elixir. Grown in chalkey-clayey with round stones. Traditional winemaking with a lengthy period in tanks. Ageing for 6 - 12 months in oak barrells in our underground caves. Colour in deep purple and Complex, red fruits nose. Powerful, generous, solid; final taste is lasting and rounded.
