Grand Montmirail Gigondas Les Deux Juliette 2018

This cuvée is named after the daughters of the producer (Yves Chéron) and the importer (Charles Neal), both of whom have girls named Juliette. The blend is 80% Grenache from 55 to 65-year-old vines, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre from 30-year-old vines. The yield is just over 33 hl/ha and all the fruit is harvested manually. The nose emits explosive aromas of kirsch, stone fruits, licorice, pepper, suave baking spices and a slightly floral character, perhaps violets. It has a supple texture that shows plenty of elegance, and a wonderfully long and satisfying finish.
