K&L Notes

Named for the family's second-generation winemaker, Cécile Chassagne took over the vineyard in Gigondas that had been originally planted by her father in 1974. This blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah is made in a traditional method without destemming. A long fermentation in open-topped wood tanks is followed by aging the wine for four months in new Allier oak. The resulting wine is a medium-bodied, meaty and elegant expression of Gigondas terroir.

    There's something really special and unique about Cecile Chassagne's 2015 Gigondas that sets it apart from other Gigondas wines I've had from various producers. This is definitely one of the prettiest Gigondas blends I've had, and one of my personal favorites that we carry in the store. Beautifully balanced acidity, and flavors of raspberry make this blend a very pleasant experience, even for those who normally don't drink wine every day. I opened this bottle up with my roommate who's not a wine guy, but he thought this was one of the best bottle of wines he ever had. Definitely worth a whirl.
