2021 Gigondas, Domaine la Font de Notre Dame, Rhone 14.5%

This is dark and full of southern warmth.  Ripe fruit marries beautifully with the results of judicious use of oak and a little nip of tannin provides firmness on the finish.

Grapes mature more slowly and the harvest is later than other appellations; the extra time being highly suited Gigondas’ dominant variety of Grenache Noir. Font de Notre Dame’s Gigondas is a blend of 80% Grenache (of course) with a small proportion of aromatic Syrah and Mourvèdre (10% each) fermented in traditional 20hl concrete vats (the winery houses 8 in total). The wine is matured for 12 months in French oak before release in the regulation appellation bottle, embossed with a coat of arms featuring the 15th century hunting horn of the family of Orange (past patrons of Gigondas) and an olive branch marking the return of plots, planted after phylloxera with olive groves, to vineyards once more.
