Domaine la Haute Marone Gigondas AOP

2015

In a Nutshell

Delicious intense fruit - glorious Gigondas.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of ripe raspberries and black cherries, then a wisp of smoke creeps in along with some hints of toasted cocoa beans. Deep and intense, this wine slowly reveals its secrets - black cherries, dark chocolate, a hint of clove and nutmeg - hugely rich and enveloping but with elegance.

Production Notes

Grenache, Syrah and Mouvèrdre vines grow on two steeply terraced plots of limestone, granite and schist. Herbs grow among the vines, and behind this scenic vineyard is the Dentelles de Montmirail (affectionately known as 'lace mountain' due to the series of ruggedly curved peaks at the top). This rich and complex wine is made by traditional vinification. 50% of the wine has been barrel aged for 14 months in barrels of 2 and 3 years, just to give another layer to the wine and a touch of vanilla.
