Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, October 2018

    Another Grenache based blend (70%) but with slightly more Mourvèdre (15%) and less Syrah (15%) than the Vacqueyras Cuvée St Roch. These vines are situated at 600 metres altitude on the terraced slopes that reach up to the Dentelles de Montmirail. A full-bodied Southern Rhône classic that is at once ripe and fresh, with a huge intensity of berry fruit, a lift of garrigue aromatics, and the spicy note of cracked white pepper. The tannins have excellent texture, and it runs neck-to-neck with the high quality 2016.

Producer

Domaine le Clos de Cazaux

Brothers Jean-Michel and Frédéric Vache run this Southern Rhône estate with passion, determination and a great enthusiasm for their region. With an aversion to oak ageing, they are more interested in expressing the fruit character of the varieties and their terrific terroirs. Alongside this philosophy, late picking, long maceration periods, and extended élevages give the wines their signature primal density. This estate is an excellent source of good value wines.

Region

Gigondas

An area for red and rosé wines Gigondas has been an appellation in its own right since 1971. Though they can occasionally be more rustic, the reds are often considered a miniature version of Châteauneuf du Pape. Part of this may have to do with the same limited yield restrictions and minimum alcoholic strength (12.5 %), but they also share some of the same varieties including Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Certain bottlings can be approached shortly after release, but many benefit from several years of cellaring. Like Châteauneuf du Pâpe, aged bottles of Gigondas take on appealing gamey and forest floor aromatics which make them particularly enjoyable with roast meats.
