K&L Notes

Established in 1900 in the heart of Gigondas, Gour de Chaule is now run by the founder's great-granddaughter, Stephanie Fumoso. This is a female-driven property as Stephanie's grandmother and mother were both actively involved in making the wines and establishing the property's domaine bottlings. The estate is comprised of 15 hectares planted in the surrounding region, 10 of which are within the appellation of Gigondas. Grenache is the main grape variety, making up about 80+% of the blend with Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the rest. Grapes are harvested manually and never destemmed. Elevage is in large oak foudres where the wine rests for about 18 months when it is bottled unfined and unfiltered. The end result is a traditionally made and balanced wine that reflects some of the best that Gigondas has to offer.

    A tremendous follow-up the the 2016, this new vintage of the Gour de Chaule is striking in its classic perfume of potpourri and spice. The 2017 vintage was a low yielding one, which contributes to the concentration but also a more classic one, giving this wine a more harmonious approach than its predecessor. Exotic garrigue notes, a palate full of black fruit and a finish with supple tannins, all lead to one of the best Gigondas' you will drink this year!
