Vinification Details

  • The grapes were 100% handpicked and very carefully sorted. This was followed by three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats at a low temperature to produce a wine that is elegant and aromatic. A blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, the plots were vinified separately and blended together to ensure a perfectly balanced wine was achieved representative of the region.

History

  • In 1999, Baptiste Grangeon joined forces with his father, passionate about viticulture and expanding his domaine. Based on the knowledge and respect of his soils in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Baptiste earned a reputation supporting the best growers who treated the vineyards as naturally as possible in accordance with the criteria of organic agriculture. The priorities were to concentrate on selecting the best parcels in order to produce wines of great quality, with a good ageing potential.

Regional Information

  • To create this Gigondas, only the best parcels were selected from the hills of Southern Rhône, on the border of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. The terroirs are mainly sandy-clay, producing wines that would rival Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Various altitudes in the region offer varying ripeness levels and fruit characters. Reflected in the quality is the fruit of the work of owners-harvesters sharing each others philosophy of the love of vine and wine.

A Bit more Like it.

4 stars

Purchased in store, Gigondas is fast becoming a place to go for quality wines at a fair price, not really seen until a few years ago they are slowly appearing on the shelves, this from an excellent vintage is very good value, it would probably improve with some more bottle age but can be enjoyed now. One of the better new additions.

GIGONDAS FRENCH RED WINE

5 stars

Excellent, full bodied red wine. Have been waiting over a year for Tesco to put the delicious wine back on their selves.

"Up and Coming Gigondas"

4 stars

Gigondas is fast becoming a recognised leader in southern Cotes du Rhone and this wine is an excellent introduction to an area which is not as well known as its northern partners like Chateauneuf du Pape or the great Burgundies. This is a strong wine, primarily of Grenache grape and while the 2013 is not the greatest vintage, keeping it for a year or so will enhance its drinkability. Having said that, it is most enjoyable now and has great fruits and a spicy finish, ideal for these cold winter evenings by the fire!

...this one is 2013...

4 stars

Solid enough Southern Rhone with a good reputation this one is 2013 that is different to previous reviews here. I'm thinking that's why I can't get as enthusiastic as others have been about it though it's still very enjoyable. The caveat being, this vintage right now definitely needs some food and I decanted mine too to get some air into it. It's young and somewhat undeveloped and maybe laid down for a couple of years if you have that inclination it could start to show some real character. I've given it 4 stars because of the deal I had to buy more cheaply. 3 stars at its full price. Maybe there is still some on store shelves from earlier vintages? I wouldn't mind trying a different year.

excellent

4 stars

Terrific value for money, was not expecting it to be so good! I will be buying more soon.

Wonderful Warming Red

5 stars

One of my "Tesco Finest" favorites and I always try to get my hands on a case when it's on offer. Great full bodied red that goes well with any rich beef or lamb dish.

Very Good

4 stars

If you are fun of Chateauneuf du Pape wines then this is the one to try. Med-full bodied, raspberry jam, soft tannins and even though alcohol levels are high it still seems very well balanced. Very Good. To pair with venison or game.

Loved it

5 stars

Perfect for a winter's day

5 stars

Nice full bodied

4 stars
