Domaine de Font-Sane Gigondas Cuvee Tradition 2014

$45.00

Made from a 9Ha block in Gigondas from 72% Grenache, 23% Syrah, 3% Mourvèdre & 2% Cinsault. This is a beautiful garnet colour that is clear and bright; the nose shows hints of clove, liquorice, ripe berries and plum; the palate is concentrated, with a charming sweetness and fine tannins. The Cuvee Tradition is a fine wine indeed with excellent length and a long cellaring potential.

More Information

Standing in Veronique Peysson’s sunny courtyard, she showed me the steep mountain peak on which her Gigondas vineyards are perched.

They seemed ridiculously high and, to the naked eye, to have no access road, but those were indeed her vines.

The famous battering Mistral wind does many things and when your vineyards are, intermingled with the mountain, it adds flavour into the wine. It literally blows the flavours from the mountains and valleys flora into the grapes – delicious notes of forest pine trees, wild herbs and olive groves all permeate the grapes; honestly, the proof is in the tasting. Le Mistral also acts as a purifier by blowing away dust and pollution, increasing sunshine hours by seeing off rain clouds and clearing rot by drying the grapes.
