Produced on sandy soils, which cover a small part of the appellation, Grenache expresses great softness and is very aromatic without being heavy. This wine is full bodied but with finesse at the same time. The 2018 vintage is characterised by exceptional weather conditions. Flowering took place in the best possible conditions, with a historically abundant grape output. A few rainy episodes at the end of the spring complicated things a little with an attack of mildew, but the good weather then settled down until harvest, which took place under idyllic conditions. The wines are beautiful. This Gigondas has a beautiful deep and bright purple colour. The fruity nose reveals notes of violet and blackcurrants. The Grenache is cultivated on sandy soils here which gives this wine a soft and rich mouth with aromas of liquorice and black fruit supported by soft, elegant tannins. Ageing potential between 4 to 7 years.
