Moulin de la Gardette "Tradition" Gigondas

Varieties: 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault. Age of vines: 40 years. Vinification: Grapes are handpicked, partially destemmed, vinified in cement tanks where a long post fermentation maceration takes place. The wine is aged for 18 months in 228 l Burgundy barrels. Light filtration is done just before bottling.

"What looks to be a terrific classic cuvee, the 2015 Gigondas Tradition is medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy and layered, with tons of Provencal garrigue, olive tapenade and roasted herb aromas and flavors. Made from 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged all in very old foudre, this classic beauty will drink well for 10-15 years." -Wine Advocate
