Gigondas ‘La Grande’, Domaine du Grand Montmirail 2016
Fragmented selection of a very old Grenache plot (more than 60 years old) with tiny yield.
This cuvée is made only year of exceptional vintage.
The nose is full with red plum and black cherries . It’s a powerfully ripe, penetrating red but fresh and lively too. The wine has beautiful velvet tannins, finishing with delicate notes of black pepper and mint.
