K&L Notes

La Ferme du Mont is the passion project of Stephane Vedeau who cultivates some 50 hectares of grapes in various spots throughout the Southern Rhône. All vines are cultivated without the use of pesticides and chemicals. Each site is meant to be the truest reflection of the terroir and the grapes they produce. The Gigondas comes from two specific soils types: the first is from 60 year old vines on fractured limestone and red clay and the other is Jurassic limestone from a higher altitude site sitting at 600 meters right in the shadow of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The blend is made up of Grenache and Syrah with a splash of Mourvedre, and is aged for 18 months in a mix of oak barrel and concrete tanks.

    We've reached critical mass here. Of all the wines in Stephane Vedeau's portfolio, this may be my biggest standout. Everything in the glass screams Gigondas, from the panoply of garrigue and black pepper notes to the brambly blackberry and red cherry fruits. The palate is fleshy, the tannins are sweet, this is a real humdinger of a wine.

    Blessed with an impressive line-up of Southern Rhone wines from the flirting with perfection 2016 vintage, the "Jugenda" Gigondas is superbly choreographed, with Grenache as the seasoned principle, partnered with Syrah in a a classic pas de deux singled out for its fleshy, intertwined red fruits, warm spices, precocious floral aromatics, all lingering long upon the palate and proving that elegance, poise and power can co-exist in a single bottle of wine. What a lovely, memorable performance!
