Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
The village of Gigondas, in the southern Rhone, gives its name to the wines from the surrounding vineyards.
This one is a blend of Syrah and Grenache, with abundant bramble fruit flavours and a real kick of spice.
Fantastic with slow-cooked stews.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years

Of the 2012 vintage, The Wine Gang said: Moving onto a new vintage has given extra va va voom to this wine, made of 75% Grenache with 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. It has depth thanks to the earthy spices and liquorice notes, and yet it also has very approachable tannins given the youthfulness of this wine, plus there's a good fruitcake richness at the end. A great authentic number to celebrate Europe Day.
Gigondas is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. Gigondas lies in between Vacqueyras and Sablet at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains.While the village was very famous for its 'eau purgative de Montmirail' in the 19th century, it is now home to famous wines. Gigondas AOC wine is produced in Gigondas.
Wines are made from a rigorous selection of grapes of Syrah and Grenache that have maturated and grown in the best vineyards in the southern part of the Rhone Valley. The hot and dry climate of the region enables the making of the classic red wines with some complexity and a high concentration of fruit.
