Description

Founded in 1854 with 18 hectares under vine planted to Grenache (80%), Syrah (15%) and Mourvedre (5%), proprietor Dominique-Ay keeps things very simple at Gigondas’ (a highly under rated appellation in Southern Rhone) finest address – one red and one Rosé. The Raspail-Ay Gigondas reflects the appellation’s characteristics faithfully in an elegantly robust style which needs four or so years for the tannins to meld with the wine.

Although not as celebrated as 1998, 1999 is still a lovely vintage in the Southern Rhone and this wine delivers well above expectations and provides excellent drinking. Hung meat, pepper, earth, leather and red currant fruits.
