Gigondas Domaine du Cayron 2015

Within the village of Gigondas, in the southern Rhône, the Faraud family estate, in existence since 1840, is now run by 5th generation sisters Delphine, Cendrine and Roseline. 16 hectares of vines largely Grenache Noir (70%) with Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre in support, are planted on a mix of clay-limestone, marl, sand and pebbles. The average age is 40 years with some around 70 years old – this explains the intensity of the wine

"Yields are tiny, much lower than the appellation rules allow, all hand harvested. The finished wine is neither fined nor filtered, giving a real sense of purity. This Gigondas exudes fresh fruit notes, cherry and blackcurrant underscored by hints of undergrowth, pepper spice and basil, mineral and precise. The palate echoes the aromatics of the nose, set within a powerful frame, supported by fine silken tannins "
