Tasting Notes

Moulin de la Gardette is a small 10ha family owned property in Gigondas with vineyards stretching from the plateau close to the village to the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains. Since 2000 they've employed organic viticulture with minimal use of copper and pesticides to enhance soil microbiological activity and express the best of their terroir. This wine is 50% Grenache & 50% Syrah. Winery note: "A vibrant wine with cherry aromas, red fruit, spice some sweetness and soft tannins. The wine is focused, soft, rather linear on the palate with a good long finish."

    A spectacular every day offering from my favorite Gigondas producer the Petite Gardette showcases the beauty of this area and the producer. Although there is a little funk on the nose when first opening this bottle a half and hour decant time will give you a beautiful wine. Very pretty ripe berry mixed with a nice amount of earth lead to a lovely clean finish. Everything here is in harmony and the balance of the fruit, acid, and tannin mean this is a perfect food wine.

    I have been a loyal fan of Gardette Gigondas since the great 1998 vintage yet had never tried this bargain price cuvee fashioned from their younger vines. Simply put: WOW. Perhaps this lacks the density of the more expensive bottlings but all of the ripe cherry, berry and spiced raspberry fruit is there in spades along with aromas of earth, potpourri and roasted herb. This is just as complex and delicious as its bigger brothers just a bit more user friendly.
