A rock star of a Gigondas based on 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2017 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes boasts a deep purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blackberries, sappy garrigue, ground peppercorns, and minty flowers. Medium-bodied, elegant, with beautiful complexity as well as minerality, drink this classic Gigondas any time over the coming 10-12 years. (Sept 2019)

I found this estate's 2017 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes irresistible. A blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah, it's full-bodied, with a velvety texture that perfectly carries complex, delicate notes of orange blossoms, red currants and red plums. Drink this delicious, fruit-forward wine from proprietor Yves Cheron over the next decade...Set in a small, elevated valley in the southeastern portion of the Gigondas appellation, Domaine du Grand Montmirail is essentially in its own little microclimate, shielded from the heat of the afternoon sun. The vineyards were extensively replanted after the killing frost of 1956 on a range of soils and stony terraces. Since 1980, it's been owned by the Cheron family. All of the grapes are destemmed, and oak is occasionally employed but generally only for the Syrah lots. JC (Aug 2019)
