Les Duclaux Gigondas Rhône GSM Blend 2016

MXN $1300

Grape: Syrah, Mouverdre, Grenache noir

Appellation: Gigondas AOC

Region: Rhône, France

You’ll taste/smell: a rich bouquet, with fine, fruity, and spicy aromas and a sunny color ranging from ruby to dark garnet. Aromas of red fruits and very ripe black fruits. On the palate, this Gigondas is full-bodied with a fleshy attack. The Grenache Noir releases all the expression of its power in this shimmering red wine with marked tannins, a structured body, and a great aptitude for aging. Syrah and Mourvèdre reinforce their garnet color and spice up their aromas.

Good to have it with:Leg of lamb, truffle dishes. Red meats in sauce

The Winery: Domaine Duclaux

Since 2006, the Quiot Family, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and its products of character, owns the Château du Trignon in order to perpetuate it, while expanding it by 10 ha of Vacqueyras and few hectares of Beaume-de-Venise.
“Respectful of achievement but rich of our wine-maker knowledge, we have adopted this land whose singularity fits in with all our others properties, in the same line of tradition, quality and adaptation.”

The origin of the name Gigondas: two hypotheses.
The first one: he would pull it out of gignit undas, “emerged from the waters”, like this mountain terroir concealing a gigantic underground reservoir.
The second one: of Latin origin, jucunda, which means “happy” and would be inspired either by Jucundus, the first owner of the place, or by its pleasant position and the pleasures of the surrounding hunting… or even the pleasure of wine itself.
The cultivation of the vine goes back to antiquity. If the veterans of the Second Roman Legion are credited with creating the first wineries, the discovery of vats for storing wine is another clue. We then note that the oldest written mention of a Gigondas vineyard is from the 12th century. Gigondas is the first Côtes du Rhône Villages to reach the rank of Cru on January 6th 1971.
