Comprising of the estate's oldest vines—a mix of Grenache and Mourvèdre from the le plateau in front of the village—the 2017 Gigondas Les Hautes Garrigues features subtle hints of smoke and crushed stone on the nose alongside scents of dark plums and black cherries. It's firm and full-bodied, with the ripe tannins and concentrated fruit to support over a decade of aging, plus a long, intense finish that adds hints of star anise and cracked pepper. This Gigondas is made from old vines in a very high altitude, single vineyard site. From stony, poor red clay soils from 3 hectares on Hautes Garrigues, yields of 15 hl/ha, from late 2010s. 90% destemmed, 5 week vinification at low temperature “to privilege the quality of the fruit and the freshness”, pumping overs. aged 90% 4-10 year oak 36 hl large barrels, 10% 800-litre clay jars. ABV 14.5%
