Moulin de la Gardette Winery, located in the renowned Gigondas appellation of the Rhône Valley, is a family-owned estate dedicated to crafting exceptional wines. With a focus on organic and sustainable practices, the vineyards benefit from the Mediterranean sun and Mistral winds, resulting in wines known for their depth and terroir expression.
This Gigondas is a true testament to meticulous winemaking in an area well known for big over the top wines that lose any sense of freshness and appeal. Sourced from a selection of old bush vine parcels, notably La Gardette, St Jean, Jasio, and Grames. The vineyards, tended organically and situated at high altitudes south of the village, boast a diverse soil composition of marls, safres (sands), and limestone-clay, contributing to the wine's distinctive character. Winemaker Jean-Baptiste's calculated gamble to harvest in mid-October, a month later than regional norms, has yielded a remarkably fine and elegant expression of Gigondas.
Aged primarily in old foudres, unveils an enticing red cherry color and a bouquet reminiscent of bramble fruits, menthol, and pine. The palate is a harmonious symphony of flavors, with beautifully nuanced raspberry and blackberry old viney fruit, intertwined with notes of liquorice, leather, violets, and a subtle blend of nutmeg and cinnamon stick. The complexity is further enhanced by a juicy berry acidity and a saline lick, all seamlessly held together by fine-grained tannins.
Whilst it's tasting great now this wine will also benefot from further ageing - possibly up to 2039.
